My family devoured these books. They are true Australian classics. Entertaining, realistic, even informative, filled with drama, romance and the great wild countryside. Horses with personality-plus yet never truly humanised.
Elyne Mitchell was a superb writer, I think she wrote about 19 Silver Brumby books and lived in the Snowy Mountains region where her inspiration came from. Her non-fiction works are a real insight into Australian heritage but she will always be remember for her wild horses.
There was a TV cartoon series made in the 1990's which was popular and they did reprint the books so I'm sure you will find plenty of material still around if you decide to re-read them.
