The wonderful Marguerite Henry made the fascinating tale of the Godolphin Arabian horse into a pulsing love story. If only more children had the opportunity to know and love horses.

Amazon Editorial Review

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 lifeby cruel masters and owners. This is the classic story of Sham and his friend, the stable boy Agba. Their adventures take themfrom the sands of the Sahara to the royal courts of France and, finally, to the green pastures andstately homes of England. For Sham was the renowned Godolphin Arabian, whose blood flows through the veinsof almost every superior Thoroughbred. Sham's speed-like his story-has become legendary.
