The Waverley Novels

The Waverley Novels by Sir Walter Scott

Waverley The Waverley Novels are a long series of novels by Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832). For nearly a century, they were among the most popular and widely read novels in all of Europe. Because Scott did not publicly acknowledge authorship until 1827, the series takes its name from Waverley, the first novel of the series released in 1814. The later books bore the words "by the author of Waverley" on their title pages.

These novels are mainly set in Scotland or England and have backdrops ranging from Ivanhoe set during the Crusades through the ages up to Scott's own time of the 18th century. Adventure, romance and intrigue are all puppets in the hands of the master wordsmith which Scott proved himself over and over again.
