North and South is a social novel published in 1854 by English writer Elizabeth Gaskell. It is set in the fictional town of Milton in the North of England when industrialisation was changing the city. Forced to leave her home in the tranquil rural south, Margaret Hale settles with her parents in Milton where she witnesses the harsh brutal world wrought by the industrial revolution and where employers and workers clash in the first organised strikes. Sympathetic to the poor whose courage and tenacity she admires and among whom she makes friends, she clashes with John Thornton, a cotton mill manufacturer who has a contemptuous attitude to workers.

This book has 487 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1855.
