Brumbies cover


Based on her own experiences traveling overland in an old Bedford truck with ten strangers, Paula's debut novel takes the reader on an armchair journey across Central Africa from Tanzania to Nigeria through some of the harshest terrain in the world... A cure for rabies is discovered in the dark jungles of Africa. Two unknown adversaries join a small tour group to gain the serum. One wants to use the cure for the good of all mankind; the other for personal glory and profit. The travellers are threatened by wild animals, tribal unrest, personal hardship and vehicle breakdowns. Set at the start of the Rwandan Civil War, the race to patent the new drug is against more than time. The physical and emotional challenges of the journey across the whole continent leaves no-one unchanged - and one of them won't come out alive.

When city girl Louise moves to the country, she discovers the mountain brumbies are to be killed for pet food. A beautiful buckskin mare steals her heart, and with local farm boy Ben, she determines to save the wild horses. Against the odds, they arrange a muster, but nothing goes according to plan. 

Following in the hoof-prints of “The Silver Brumby” and “The Man from Snowy River”, this horse-packed adventure encounters some of the toughest territory in Australia and gallops into our hearts. 

This is the first book in the series of five illustrated novels.
