A silver brumby is special – he will be hunted by man and horse alike, and must be stronger than both...Thowra, the magnificent silver stallion, is king of the brumbies. He will defend his herd from the mighty horse, The Brolga, in the most savage of struggles. But The Brolga is not the only danger – Thowra needs all his speed and cunning to save the herd from capture by man. In a desperate chase through the mountains, it seems there is no longer anywhere for him to run to...Recommended for children aged 10+#43 in  Australia's Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads
