AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND

CHAPTER I 

THE HAY-LOFT 

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. 

He lived in a low room over a coach-house; and that was not by any
means at the back of the north wind, as his mother very well knew.
