Publisher's Summary

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

Childhood Classic!

This is a wonderful story by a favorite childhood author. I enjoyed listening to it with my daughter. The narration is outstanding. This audio performance was one of the best I have heard. I will be looking for other books read by David McCallum. One feature I especially like is that unlike some audio books, this book is divided into chapters that match the paperback copy I have. It can be so annoying if you want to switch between a hard copy and audio and the chapters do not match. I usually read aloud at home, but enjoy listening while in the car.
