Scottish author George MacDonald was an inspiration for writers of children's fiction such as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, Madeline L'Engle, Lewis Carroll, and even Mark Twain. At the Back of the North Wind is the fantastical story of Diamond, a young boy whose adventures begin when the North Wind offers to take him for a ride on her back. Though Diamond is poor and his reality is grim, his heart is pure and his wisdom is extraordinary. Through his friendship with the North Wind, Diamond is able to encounter exciting and, at times, challenging adventures. In addition to its ethereal quality, this book is imbued with Christian philosophy and some Dickens-like social commentary. This children's story was published in book form in 1871 and Diamond has been tugging at readers' heartstrings ever since. North Wind is a story that is best read aloud to children and will thrill audiences for generations to come. -CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

George MacDonald

George MacDonald (1824-1905), Scottish poet, preacher, and novelist was one of the most original and influential writers of Victorian Britain. He wrote over 50 books with millions of copies sold, and he was one of the most popular authors of the day on both sides of the Atlantic. Drawn to the pulpit early, MacDonald eventually left to pursue his writing. Numbered among Dickens, Trollope, and other giants of the age as a novelist, MacDonald ended his career with over 50 books ranging from fantastical literature, to children's stories, to critical essays, and numerous novels. In addition to writing, MacDonald lectured extensively. MacDonald's fiction combined the man's immense spiritual understanding with his innate storytelling ability. His works have influenced writers like C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and many others.- Publisher.
