To many people the name Elyne Mitchell is synonymous with The Silver Brumby, the timeless classic that has captivated the hearts and imaginations of young readers since it was first published in 1958.

This special edition has been published to commemorate the centenary of Elyne Mitchell's birth and contains The Silver Brumby and three other favourite Brumby books: Silver Brumby's Daughter, Silver Brumbies of the South and Silver Brumby Kingdom. These much-loved classics tell the story of Thowra, the magnificent silver stallion, king of the brumbies. Whether you are enjoying the Silver Brumby series for the first time or rediscovering it after many years, this is a book to be treasured.

Also included in this beautiful edition is a specially commissioned biography of Elyne Mitchell, who was born in 1913 and went on to become one of Australia's most successful and popular authors. The biography also contains photographs that depict Elyne in many other areas of her long and distinguished life, including that of daughter, wife, mother, sportswoman, horsewoman, farmer and environmentalist.

About the Author

Inspired by her father, who taught her to ride, Elyne Mitchell's interest in horses began when she was a young girl. The Silver Brumby, written for the eldest of her four children and first published in 1958, heralded the beginning of the internationally famous series - there are 12 Silver Brumby titles in the series. In March 2002 Elyne Mitchell died at the age of 88 years. Her legacy continues in the stories she created of Thowra and the other High Country brumbies.

BEAUTIFUL AND CAPTIVATING STORY!

As I said in my last review of the second book in the series, as soon as I could read, I grabbed these books from the local library. And when I found they were back in print, I couldn't wait to purchase them. These books gave me the love of reading that I have today, many years later.

Classic Children's Book

This book was a childhood favorite and I liked the idea of the first 4 books being bound together. I want to re-read the stories from an adult perspective.

Good but not the best.

After having lived in the Snowy as a boy, I found the landscape description taking me back to the different area's & constantly reminiscing.

Right amount of beauty and nostalgia

This is an amazing compilation of four much loved books. Being able to read all of them from start to finish is a big benefit of multi-volume editions. Surprisingly, given the size, this book wasn't overly hard to handle. Certainly the story is beautifully written with amazing descriptions, much as it has always been. The covers of these new releases are also beautiful and simple and clean, a wonderful fresh take. I have been hunting for these books since I was a child, but they've been hard to get a hold of up until now. It's a pleasure to see them republished.
