  Summary: Black Horses for the King by Anne McCaffrey is about a boy named Galwyn Varianus. It is based somewhere in modern England in a city called Deva. Galwyn is the son of a dishonored Roman aristocrat. When his father died Galwyn was apprenticed to his cruel uncle. Every day aboard his uncle's ship, Galwyn suffers. This book would be a great book to use as a class read aloud book in a history lesson and a great way to connect language arts with history. this book would appeal to students who are very interested in history, King Arthur or in horses but for the most part it would not be a great independent reading book because it is a historically based book/5(21).
