When Lord Artos, later known as King Arthur, needs an interpreter, Galwyn gets a chance to redeem his father's honor and make a name for himself. But Galwyn goes farther than that by riding into battle as Arthur's farrier in this meticulously researched and compelling tale.
Galwyn, the son of a bankrupted and dishonored aristocrat, has always had an ear for languages. So when Lord Artos--later known as King Arthur--needs an interpreter to help him buy large horses to breed a troop strong enough to carry armed warriors against the Saxon invaders, Galwyn gets a chance to redeem his father's honor and make a name for himself. "The wonderful horse lore, the great and charismatic figure of Arthur, and the sympathetic hero all come together to make an engrossing and realistic Arthurian novel."--The Horn Book
