Wonderful book; different from other Narnian books in that the main characters are born in that world, other than this one. V. interesting look at the Pevensies as adults in Narnia, but the story centers around Shasta and Aravis, two runaways from Calormene. It's a wonderful tale, and worth reading, and re-reading, and re-re-reading. And then reading again.
