Very Good+ in Very Good+ jacket. This is a borderline superb copy, however I made the discovery of one page with a longish 5 inch or so tear. The integrity of the book is not affected, it is a clean, closed tear.

A young prince in Hungary during World War II. He is taught about his heritage and about how he should conduct himself from the time he was a small child. His castle is taken over by the Nazis and then is destroyed. He escapes with his horse. He eventually comes to America and is reunited with his horse. A very touching story with great fathers who love and teach him. It has been several years since I read the book, but it is still one of my favorites.
