by Alex de Jonge
A dandy story for all horse lovers and worthy rival to Marguerite Henry's enormously successful King of the Wind. Ms. Henry based her story on this very book, written in 1846 by French author and sportsman Eugene Sue. Here now is Alex de Jonge's immensely readable translation of the original tale—an imaginative mixture of fact and legend recreating the life of the Godolphin Arabian and his constant companion, Grimalkin the cat.
Alex de Jonge lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.
|"Sue's tale of how a colt foaled in Yemen became one of the foundation stallions of the English Thoroughbred breed with delight any horse lover."
|"A riveting story about love and loyalty for hourse lovers of all ages. The Godolphin Arabian is a riveting, as well as heartbreaking story of love, loyalty and the extraordinary bond between horse and human."
