Reviews for King of the Wind

5The story is of a mute Morrocan stable boy, Agba, and a foal, Sham, who is born to one of the royal mares Agba cares for. Sham and Agba are selected to be part of a gift to the King of France. Their adventures in Europe are filled mostly with despair and cruelty, until Sham sires a foal that becomes the beginnings of the thoroughbred breed we know today. Sham was renamed he Godolphin Arabian". All thoroughbreds must include in their pedigree one of the three specific founding sires, and the Godolphin Arabian is one of them. There's a lot here: adventure, triumph over adversity, a respect for other cultures, the care of the creatures that share our lives, and a healthy dose of humor about the absurdities of the powerful or elite.
