Nevertheless his dream comes true in the end, although not quite as he'd imagined it.This book has wonderful descriptions of the Australian bush, and of the ways of its men and animals. But it is powerful and sometimes violent in the telling and best suited to readers of ten years and over.Cover design by Barrie Driscoll...

    I read this book over and over again when I was a child.Amazingly, I still have it and it's in pretty good condition.My mother read it before me, her name is faded on the inside cover. I think I found it on a raid in the garage one day.Quite moving for a book about horses. I don't recall the storyline, but I do remember the imagery and the emotions it brought.It didn't make it to the charity pile this time, and I think it'll be read again before I consider letting it go once more.

    A truly beautiful story. The author gives a great insight into the life of a small community in outback New South Wales. The loneliness of a little boy who finds a brumby herd on his fathers property is captured vividly.

    Was one of my all time favorite books as a child, I even wrote a short story loosely based on it! Although I can read it in about 5 minutes now, its still worth the read for all the brumby lovers out there!

    Chronicles of Han Storm Book Club ReadFor a horse nut, most stories about horses are acceptable, but this one became a favourite. The Brumby now entertains my own children who enjoy it with me.
