Horse of Fire and other stories from around the world

Written by Lari Don

Horse of Fire and other stories from around the world Synopsis

Have you ever heard of the horse who had gold in his dung, or of the Fire Horse of Hiisi with his mane of gold and red flame and smouldering black hooves? What about the hippogriff, the centaurs and the wise colt? I bet you've heard rumours of a goddess disguised as a white horse and whisperings about the proud unicorns and the headless horseman who steals cattle. This is a collection of stories about warriors, monsters and heroes' horses and about the origins of horses and people. It is an anthology of stories where horses are magical and stories where horses are the villains. From Gambian, Persian, Australian and Ukrainian myths to Jewish, Indian and Navajo retellings, Lari Don presents horse stories from around the world, perfect for any horse lover. Book band: Dark Red Ideal for ages 10+
