Short but (bitter)sweet 1977 story about iron-age tribe
on 12 August 2014
1000 BC - this is the story of a small tribe in South-Central Britain and the boy Lubrin, born into the chief's family; but different. Different from the warriors in that he has artistic talent, and that is not an easy thing to have among a horse-breeding warrior tribe. Through this short book (just over 100 pages) this is the story of how the tribes lived, in those days; how his tribe was attacked; and how the Great White Horse came to be cut into the hillside. About the value of friendship, tradition, and sacrifice; and beauty.
