When city girl Louise moves to the country, she discovers the mountain brumbies are to be killed for pet food. She and Ben, a local farm boy, determine to save as many of the wild horses as they can. Despite opposition, they arrange a muster, but nothing goes according to plan.
Following in the hoof-prints of “The Silver Brumby” and “The Man from Snowy River”, this horse-packed adventure encounters challenges through some of the toughest territory in Australia.
The book is richly illustrated by artist and writer, Rowena Evans.
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.

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!
An emu struggles to raise his offspring and a seahorse dances with his mate before nurturing her eggs inside his pouch, two examples of males that carry the responsibility for caring for their young. From a crocodile dealing with the extremes of drought and flood, a humpback whale migrating thousands of kilometres with her calf, to a whirligig beetle escaping predatory fish, this collection of short stories provides insight to some of the challenges faced by Australia’s fascinating animals.
Paula Boer’s stories take the view of iconic Australian fauna, wrapped in scientific fact.
For only US$0.99, this short work will delight and edify you. Of Emus and Seahorses will soon be available in all good online stores, but can be bought now through the IFWG Publishing eBook Store.
