Is homeland with the talking horse Bree When the pair discover a deadly plot by the Calormen people to conuer the la The basic story is a good and entertaining one but I could not get beyond the overt prejudices of CS Lewis on display throughout this bookI'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 owners Their leader is a corrupt war monger This land and its people are consistently contrasted against the fair skinned judicious and free thinking people of Narnia and Archenland It's not a book I would recommend In fact it has lessened by desire to continue reading the chronicles This is really too bed because other than the cultural depictions the story idea is marvelous
