Description of this Book
The rare silver brumby is a special creature, both to other horses and to men! A silver brumby is special, but he will be hunted by man and horse alike, and must be stronger than both. Thowra, the magnificent silver stallion, is king of the brumbies. But he must defend his herd from the mighty horse, The Brolga, in the most savage of struggles. That is not the only danger. Thowra needs all his speed and cunning to save his herd from capture by man. In a desperate chase through the mountains, it seems there is no longer anywhere for him to run to!
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
Elyne Mitchell (1913-2002) began writing for her children. Although the Silver Brumby books are her most famous, she wrote several others, mainly about horses. Passionate about the dramatic landscapes of the Australian Alps, her books convey the beauty and savagery of that area with a remarkable lyricism.
