Jim Craig is eighteen-years-old, and cannot return to his mountain home until he has proven himself a man. Jessica Harrison is the beautiful, impetuous daughter of the wealthy cattleman whose 1000 colt runs off to join the brumby mob. And then there is the stallion, leader of the brumbies for almost twenty years, ranging free and proud in the mountains, whose very existence is like a dark thread running through the lives of so many people...

Thank you very much book-a-neer for the two books, BC stickers, two beautiful bookmarks and your nice note! I received some very interesting books through this sweeps, I can't wait to delve into this ocean of classic literature!

This was a very quick and nice little book! The plot was somehow predictable, but I enjoyed it a lot and loved the descriptions of the nature, the landscape and the lifestyle of the era and area. I liked the crucial part that horses had in the story, many of them pictured with distinct personalities. Interesting terminology to learn too for this Greek who's far from fluent in English!

I noticed that this book is inspired by an early 1980s film that in turn was inspired by a 1890's poem by Banjo Paterson, who's actually featured in the novel. How cool is that?
An Australian classic and quite different from my usual reads, thanks once again book-a-neer for sharing! BookCrossing can be quite educational!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

The Man From Snowy River enjoyed his stay in Greece very much, but now got itchy feet again and decided he wants to visit and explore one more new continent to him!
He picked a weird 18th century English girl for companion too.
The people and places you meet through BookCrossing... lol

Something different from what I usually read, but I enjoyed it, especially the description of nature and horses. A lovely diversion.
