Paula Boer, author of the Brumbies series, was part of the official launch of the fourth instalment of her five part series, Brumbies in the Outback.
Saturday 7th June 2014. Paula Boer gave a brief talk of the three years she and her husband Pete worked in cattle stations which inspired Brumbies in the Outback. Snowprint Bookshop in Jindabyne NSW ran a photo competition to launch the book. The winners were: Wild horse category – winner Peter Bartrip; Highly Commended – Bob Lawton and Ruth Donovan; Domestic horse category – Sally Weston.
Congratulations to all the winners!
Happy to announce that the fourth book in the five-part Brumbies series, Brumbies in the Outback, by Paula Boer (and illustrated by Rowena Evans) has been published. It will, over the next coming days, be available in print form in all good online retailers. The ebook formats will be available in the same timeframe. We are aiming to publish the last book in the series, Brumbies in the Mountains, before Christmas 2014.
Ben and Louise discover that life on a remote cattle station is very different to their Snowy Mountains home. Missing her horse, Honey, Louise struggles to adapt to the outback. Ben has a graver concern: he is desperate to prove that Brandy, his stallion, is fit after a serious leg injury, otherwise he may be destroyed. From mustering and working cattle, to tracking and taming desert brumbies, both friends are challenged by their experiences.
Print books are now available through IFWG, as well as ebook formats.
