3Great series--shamefully overpriced here  Jul 30, 2008
By Katherine of Amazon "I'd Rather Just Buy It Online"
This series deserves FIVE STARS, but the price asked for it here is nothing short of egregious--that's the only reason the program is getting demerits from me.

Head over to sullivanboutique.com, the original producers of the series, and grab yourself the first two seasons for less than what they are asking here for the first season alone.

Some other distributor has scarfed up the rights to seasons three, four and five, I have heard, and supposedly they will be available in the fall of 2008 at some retailers, both brick and mortar and online.

I wish AMAZON would put them up for pre-order (at a more acceptable price than they're offering for the first two seasons, of course).

Anyway, for those interested in the series, it's a heartwarming family program, made in Canada, about a young widow and her children going through considerable trial and tribulation during the Great Depression in a Canadian mining town. There's a tough-as-nails Granny, cute kids, assorted "local flavor" town characters, and a storyline that keeps you riveted. Great costuming and sets, too. No cussin' or naughty bits on display, so it can be watched by the kiddies and those family members on a day excursion from the convent or monastery!

This really is some fine family programming--but don't pay this much for it. If you're rich and can afford to throw your money away, buy it from the source and send the money you've saved to a charity aiding the poor.

You can do much better on the price than this.

We love the "Wind at My Back" series and look forward to seeing all of the seasons. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys good wholesome stories, especially in a time when such are so difficult to find.

5Wind at my Back is a wonderful series. Wish America could have watched it when it was on in Canada.  Sep 21, 2010
By T. F. Hankins
I cannot say enough good things about this series (total of 5 yrs, plus Christmas episode). The series is a good, clean viewing for anyone. Each episode is so well written, the characters and the scenery depicting the Depression Era, is supurb. Loved each and every episode. Loaned to friends and they are "hooked!!!" Cannot say enough good things about this - Love it!

5Wind at my Back the 2nd season  Apr 23, 2012
By BGarlock
I think when I did a review for the first season I had done it prematurely and did not express the totality of my fondness for this program, so I will do that now with the second season. My family and I look forward to our time spent together watching this show that consistantly proves itself to be endearing,entertaining, thought provoaking and wonderful. I appreciate the greatness of this production.
