Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He was named "Sham" for the sun, this golden red stallion born in the Sultan of Morocco's stone stables.

Upon his heel was a small white spot, the symbol of speed. But on his chest was the symbol of misfortune.

Although he was as swift as the desert winds, Sham's proud pedigree would be scorned all his life

by cruel masters and owners.

This is the classic story of Sham and his friend, the stable boy Agba. Their adventures take them

from the sands of the Sahara to the royal courts of France and, finally, to the green pastures and

stately homes of England. For Sham was the renowned Godolphin Arabian, whose blood flows through the veins

of almost every superior Thoroughbred. Sham's speed-like his story-has become legendary.

Synopsis:

"Vivid portrayals of Morocco, France, and England during the 1700s are presented while the story unfolds. With its illustrations by Wesley Dennis, this is one of the most distinguished books of the year".--School Library Journal.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [3], 2nd group).
