The Horse and His Boy (Chronicles of Narnia, #3) The Battle Of Good Against Evil Is Fought In The Magical World Of Narnia, In The Most Enchanting Fantasy Novels Ever Written When Shasta Learns He Is Not The Son Of Arsheesh The Fisherman, He Decides To Escape From The Cruel Land Of Calormen With The Talking Horse, Bree, He Goes North On A Fearful Journey Past The Eerie Tombs In The Desert And In Disguise Through The City Of Tashbaan To Find Narnia, Where The Air Is Sweet And There Is Freedom, Safety And Happiness. This is probably my favorite of the Chronicles It takes place during the Golden Age of Narnia, with the Pevensies reigning in their prime, although the story is actually set in the countries to the south of Narnia, which provides for a rather dif

The basic story is a good and entertaining one, but I could not get beyond the overt prejudices of C.S Lewis on display throughout this book.I m incredibly disappointed His portrayal of the people of Calormen is horrid I admit, by calor I don t known if he is implying people of the hot lands as calor indicates heat or if it is a not so subtle way of suggesting colored people, but the descriptions speak for themselves These people are described as dark skinned, turban wearing, cruel slave o The basic story is a good and entertaining one, but I could not get beyond the overt prejudices of C.S Lewis on display throughout this book.I m
