A remarkable adventure for the imagination, The Horse and His Boy tells the story of a young boy named Shasta, who has escaped from a life of slavery, and the talking horse who launches the adventure. As they travel across deserts, through cities, and over mountains, a mysterious lion shadows their every move and a treacherous prince wages war against an unsuspecting Narnia. Featuring talented voice actors, film-style sound design, and a rich musical score, this is an adventure on an epic scale.

Fully dramatized and produced with cinema-quality sound design and music, The Horse and His Boy is the third of seven audio dramas in the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre production of The Chronicles of Narnia. Hosted by Douglas Gresham, stepson of C. S. Lewis, and recorded in London, these timeless adventures are brought to life by a cast of talented actors, including award winners Paul Scofield and David Suchet.

This is a repackaged, individual title from the bestselling Radio Theatre series The Chronicles of Narnia, which has sold more than 950,000 copies.

From the Inside Flap:

When Shasta discovers he is not Arsheesh's son and therefore does not belong in the cruel land of Calormen, he joins forces with Bree the talking horse and flees north towards Narnia, where freedom reigns.

And so begins their hazardous journey, fraught with mystery and danger. Calormen's capital city of Tashbaan must be crossed, a harsh desert endured, the high mountains of Archenland climbed, their enemies overcome. For the young Shasta it is an adventure beyond his wildest dreams and one destined to change his life forever.

This acclaimed BBC Radio dramatization perfectly captures C.S. Lewis' magical world, inviting us to "breathe" the sweet air of Narnia once again and to join the mighty Aslan and his people in defending its most precious borders.

From the Back Cover:

Narnia ... where horses talk ... where treachery is brewing ... where destiny awaits

On a desperate journey, two runaways join forces looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives. Soon they are at the center of a terrible battle—that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia. Read by Anthony Quayle.
