Overview

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.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.
