About the Author:

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 School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8–Australian actress Caroline Lee enthusiastically and energetically narrates this recording of Elyne Mitchell's 1958 novel about wild horses (brumbies) in Australia. It is the story of Thowra, a silvery-white brumby, who becomes leader of his own herd over the course of the book, defeating other stallions and evading the men who try to capture him. This fairly realistic horse story occasionally slips into a more fantastical style, such as when the horses converse with each other and with other animals (cows, kangaroos, dingoes) and when Mitchell attributes human emotions and thoughts to Thowra. Lee's voice walks, trots, canters, and gallops through the story, as appropriate to the action. The book is prefaced with an Australian glossary, primarily consisting of descriptions of the local flora and fauna. There are musical cues for the beginning and end of each chapter as well as each side of the tape. Young horse lovers will relish this story.–Sarah Flowers, Santa Clara County Library, San Jose, CA
