Jules Verne (1828-1905) is not generally associated with Scotland, but his two trips to the country so entranced him that he wrote a travelogue and set five of his novels there. As well as providing an account of his visits to Edinburgh, Glasgow, the Highlands and the Hebrides, this book analyses novels such as The Blockade Runners and The Green Ray to illuminate the French author's lifelong fascination with all things Scottish.
