The year is 1919. Thirty years have passed since the man from Snowy River made his famous ride. But World War I still casts its shadow across a valley in the heart of Australia, particularly for orphaned sixteen-year-old Flinty McAlpine, who lost a brother when the Snowy River men marched away to war.

Why has the man Flinty loves returned from the war so changed and distant? Why has her brother Andy 'gone with cattle', leaving Flinty in charge of their younger brother and sister and with the threat of eviction from the farm she loves so dearly?

A brumby muster held under the watchful eye of the legendary Clancy of the Overflow offers hope. Now Flinty must ride to save her farm, her family and the valley she loves.

Set among the landscapes of the great poems of Australia, this book is a love song to the Snowy Mountains and a tribute to Australia's poets who immortalised so much of our land. The Girl from Snowy River combines passion, heartbreak, history and an enduring love and rich understanding of our land. It continues the grand saga that began with A Waltz for Matilda.

Moving, Brilliant


This book is by far my favourite. It is packed with suspense, romance and excitement. I highly recommend this book to anyone aged 10+, it isn't difficult to read in a way that it's impossible to follow but more that as soon as you pick it up you know whats happening and you feel as if you're really there.



I would die for this book!


This book is very intriguing. A book for almost everyone who loves history and a tinse of excitement. Jackie French has done an extraordinary job in this book.



Inspirational and insightful


I have read this book once but I plan to read it a number of times. Jackie French has done it again in a story of hardship, heartbreak and Aussie spirit. Love it and would recommend it to teenagers weather your 13 or 16. Fantastic!!!
