By Eric A. Kimmel The book is tells the story about:Don Quixote battle with the windmills The book is well written because it have a lot information about Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. My favorite part of the book is that when Don Quixote said to Sancho Panza, In one week l will make an island and l will make you king of it/5(25). When it becomes clear to Quixote that this is a field of windmills, he argues that an evil enchanter has transformed the giants into windmills in order to rob Quixote of a dashing victory. Chapter 9 Armed with a tree branch (to replace the broken lance), Quixote continues on his quest.

  Don Quixote has become so entranced reading tales of chivalry that he decides to turn knight errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, these exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray—he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants—Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity/5(10).   Quixote is not badly hurt, though his horse, Rocinante, is more seriously wounded. When it becomes clear to Quixote that this is a field of windmills, he argues that an evil enchanter has transformed the giants into windmills in order to rob Quixote of a dashing victory.
