A silver brumby is special, but he will be hunted by man and horse alike, and must be stronger than both... Thowra's speed and courage have always saved him from the men who want to capture him - until now, when the men come on skis quickly and silently over the mountains. This time Thowra must protect his daughter from the hunters who prize the silver brumbies above any other horse.

Elyne Mitchell (1913-2002) began writing for her children. Although the Silver Brumby books are her most famous, she wrote several others, mainly about horses. Passionate about the dramatic landscapes of the Australian Alps, her books convey the beauty and savagery of that area with a remarkable lyricism.From AudioFile:
In this coming-of-age story the protagonist is a wild horse. The silver-coated filly, Kunama, longs to explore the mountains beyond the safe world of her parents, but danger lurks. A violent stallion tries to force her into his herd. Men plot to capture and tame her. Owls hoot warnings and wisdom. A kangaroo helps her. There's romance, too--a handsome stallion is drawn to her. Caroline Lee's sensitive performance is an excellent match for the lyrical text. Her expressive voice is intimate and enchanting, quivering with fear, laughing with joy, sometimes trotting, sometimes slowing down to luxuriate in the beauty of the landscape. This is an exquisite listening experience. E.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
