This book had a profound effect on me as a child. Some of it is actually pretty troubling, so watch out when reading it to LITTLE kids. It's not all fun and games, let me tell you!
It is actually an extremely EDUCATIONAL book about the breed's origins and the rich tradition of history around the Arabian horse. Some people in the industry still refer to a sweet horse as being a "tent horse", meaning that this is the type of mare they would have brought into their tent to sleep.
I can't recommend it enough, just maybe not for kids under nine.
Henry is an expert in horse stories, and this is one of her finest. King of the Wind is well-written, colorful, and pulls at your heart - even for adults!
A classic to be enjoyed by the whole family. Enjoy it as a read-aloud, if possible!
