'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 and 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 and sometimes fearful spirit at whose back lies the greatest of all adventures.
George Macdonald (1824-1905) was a friend to Lewis Carroll and has been acknowledged by C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkien, W.H.Auden, Madeleine L'Engle and many others. Although many people are not aware of it, they may have read George Macdonald's words in the work of C.S.Lewis, who said, "I have never concealed the fact that I regarded Macdonald as my master, indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him."
