Listen hard...you can hear magic in the wind!
Diamond lives in a hayloft. But that was all right with him. He loves to snuggle up to the horses at night and listen to them snore away. Sometimes he can even hear the stars twinkling in the sky.
One night Diamond is visited by a beautiful fairy with long flowing hair. She calls herself North Wind, and she lives in the enchanged land far, far away. Best of all, she has come to take Diamond back with her--back to the land at the back of the North Wind.
Adored by millions of young readers since its first publication in 1871, George MacDonald's magical tale continues to delight.
Baker & Taylor One night, young Diamond, who lives in a hayloft, meets North Wind, a beautiful woman with long black hair, who whisks Diamond over London and shows him many wonderful sights, but Diamond's favorite adventure is the dream-like country in which the cold wind never blows. Reprint.
