Black Horses for the King.

Black Horses for the King.

The court of King Arthur (Artos) from the point of view of a Roman-Celtic boy, Galwyn, who eventually helps Arthur develop a stable of war horses for his knights. To help their hooves adjust to the English climate, he also becomes a skilled farrier. Although this is a departure from science fiction, the author knows her history and her horses, and this book is an absorbing read. (And a good example of how a book's price is more influenced by availability than anything else!) PLEASE NOTE: This book has been sold.
