Thus begins a remarkable adventure for the pair and any horse-lover will be enthralled by the storyline.
What elevates Brumbies above the usual pony read is that not only is it set in wild mountain country with all its tough challenges, but Paula has described every detail of what riding, mustering, and wild horse-taming is all about.
Her experience as a horsewoman, mustering on remote cattle stations and capturing and breaking in brumbies to name a few of her talents, shines through with gripping authenticity.
Readers with little knowledge of horses will be delightfully educated and this story is bound to be a hit in schools as well as in the wider readership.
Paula describes the birdlife and fauna of the Australian bush with great enthusiasm. A Glossary is included for added information.
