A bit of white out over name on fep, else no marks, writing, tears or issues in the 144 pp text. Un-clipped, original dust wrapper shows color loss at lightly rubbed tips and head of spine, lower half of boards look great. An exciting story of adventure and suspense, set in the Australian Alps, this is the tale of Wirramirra, the last born son of Thowra, the Silver Brumby, who sets off to the mountains of the south with his dam Yuri, determined to find his fabled sire. Their search for the magnificent silver stallion is beset by death and disaster. Other wild horses want Yuri for themselves and try to oust Wirramirra from the Ramshead country, which they consider their territory. The two searchers are also chased by men and endangered by fire, lightning and blizzards as they make their way south. But, haunted by a voice in the wind and a shape in the snow-dust whirlwind, they press on.
