Email this review


Those who were moved by Elyne Mitchell's first book, The Silver Brumby, will find equal enjoyment in its sequel which tells the story of the striking white filly, Kunama, daughter of the legendary Thowra. Her naive days of gallop through the hills and valleys, the cascades and bush of the Australian mountains, and her friendship with the black stallion Tambo come to an abrupt end with her capture. It is only through a boy's perception of this creature's untamable spirit that she goes free to rejoin the Silver Herd in the Secret Valley. A sense of the wildly primitive unite in beast and setting in a revealing story of forceful rebellion and freedom by an author whose familiarity with her subject echoes throughout.
