The King of the Golden River
by StoryMax

The King of the Golden River is a short story (translated to English, Spanish, and Portuguese) written as a fairy tale. It tells the story of a very old and strange man who visited three brothers during a thunderstorm. Unfortunately, two of them mistreated the old man who was, in fact, the South-West Wind Esquire. To take revenge, he turned their fertile valley into red sand.
