"The House of the Four Winds" is a 1935 adventure novel by the Scottish novelist John Buchan. It is set in the fictional European country of Evallonia in the early 1930s, and explores the influence of some Scottish visitors in the toppling of a corrupt government - and the reinstatement of a monarchy. This text is a must-read for anyone who has enjoyed its prequel, "Castle Gay", or any of Buchan's writing, and it would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. The chapters of this book include: 'The Man with the Elephant', 'The House of the Four Winds', 'Diversions of a Marionette', 'Difficulties as a Revolutionary', 'Surprising Energy of a Convalescent', 'Arrivals at an Inn', 'Splendide Mendax', 'Night in the Woods', etcetera. Many texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
