King of the Wind

Written by Marguerite Henry

A fictionalized account of the Godolphin Arabian, known as Sham, an ancestor of the modern thoroughbred. When the stallion was born in the stables of the Sultan of Morocco, he had two marks, one signifying good luck and the other bad luck. The second mark destined him to a life of travel with Agba, a mute slave. Eventually, he earned his rightful place in history as king of the wind.
