'At the Back of the North Wind' is one of MacDonald's best loved fairy tales.
First published in 1870, it has remained in print and in people's hearts ever since. Full of beauty, joy and wisdom, this story is comforting, haunting & challenging by turns. Set in 19th Century London, it tells of Diamond, the son of a coachman, and his adventures with North Wind, a mysterious, beautiful & sometimes dreadful spirit at whose back lies the greatest of all adventures.
George Macdonald (1824 -1905) was a friend to Lewis Carroll & has been acknowledged by C.S.Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Madeleine L'Engle, W.H.Auden and many others.
