About the Book

A classic story of the endless battle between the North and the South of England, Come Back With the Wind tells a humorous tale of how the threat of an embargo on whiskey sales to the South leads to civil war and a possible permanent split between the two proud regions.

The late Les Dawson – author, beloved television comedian and game show host – has created a timeless account of love, honour and alcohol that sits perfectly in the great chronicles of the struggles of the North-South divide. Battle lines will be drawn, friendships and family ties tested and kegs tapped as the path to war approaches, albeit with a hiccough or two.
