King of the Wind: The Story of the Godolphin Arabian

King of the Wind: The Story of the Godolphin Arabian Cover

 

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:

This Marguerite Henry classic follows the adventures of the Arabian stallion, brought to England to become one of the founding sires of the Thoroughbred breed, and of the mute Arab stable boy who tended him with loyalty and devotion all his life.
