Once upon a time in the North – Philip Pullman

With the popularity of Philip Pullman’s classic His dark materials not suffering from the release of the Golden Compass on film, it is a joy to be able to continue the story with what amounts to a prequel to the tale of Lyra and her friends. Set as a type of Western cowboy narrative, bullying and greed now become the realm of politics and political ambition.
