Order of Courtney Books
The Courtney series is a series of historical fiction novels written by Anglo-African author Wilbur Smith. The series follows the Courtney family throughout many different generations. The series starts in the 1660s and runs up until 1987. The series is broken down into three sequences; from the 1860s to 1925, from 1917 until 1987 and the final part (which chronicles multiple generations of Courtneys) from the 1660s until 1918.
Wilbur Smith’s first Courtney novel was When the Lion Feeds in 1964. Although the Courtney series is Wilbur’s largest series, it still only has 13 novels in it – not much considering the series started nearly 50 years ago.
