A Favorite of C.S. Lewis, L.M. Montgomery, and the children of Mark Twain
Featuring seventy-six illustrations by Arthur Hughes and twelve by Maria L. Kirk
Little Diamond lives the quietest of lives in his snug, stable-yard home. But after a visit from Lady North Wind, he discovers new friends and horizons, and embarks on a series of thrilling journeys. At last he may reach the country at North Wind’s back–if he can learn how to know her through all her changing forms, and to listen for the music of a far-off song. At the Back of the North Wind was George MacDonald’s first fantasy novel for children, and would become a favourite with C. S. Lewis, L. M. Montgomery, and the daughters of Mark Twain.
