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.
On Saturday 26th April 2014, Paula Boer, IFWG author of the Brumbies series, visited Snowprint Bookshop in Jindabyne to judge the Brumbies art competition.
