Their plea arrived in childish scrawl, penciled on a crap of paper in thick, crooked letters: "Make one that looks like a knight..." It was only a suggestion, offered after a child had watched Everett demonstrate carousel carving techniques at the Salem Art Fair. But it captured a yearning. As fate would have it, the horse that Everett and Damaris "Dee" would adopt is a majestic medieval mount that any knight in shining armor would feel proud to ride.
