I have been asked to tell you about the back of the north wind. An old Greek writer mentions a people who lived there, and were so comfortable that they could not bear it any longer, and drowned themselves. My story is not the same as his. I do not think Herodotus had got the right account of the place. I am going to tell you how it fared with a boy who went there.

A Scottish Victorian fairy tale, full of Christian metaphysics and period morality, but very charming, fanciful, and poetic. Much of the subject matter -- extreme poverty, alcoholism, domestic abuse, and death -- is very serious, making the book more suitable for older children. Adults interested in the fairy tale genre will probably enjoy this less well-known classic.
