AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Wise old Benni, the kangaroo tells Thowra, the great Silver Brumby: 'In the north the whirlwind blows. And you will dance with living light. There, in the north, is the first born daughter of sunlight and moonlight blending over snow ... A whirlwind is the beginning. And a whirlwind is the end.' So Thowra goes to the strange country northwards to discover the meaning of Benni's riddle.

Notes

  • Dedication: Harry, to all the marvellous mountain days
  • Author's note: This Silver Brumby book was suggested by an American reader, Carol Clark. / The bare bones of the story were discussed - to the whisper of skis on cold snow, which was criss-crossed by hare's tracks - one early winter's day, below the tors of the Ramshead range, in 1971, and some of the writing was done at Thredbo during that winter. The book was finished, fired with an idea of Indi's, at Towong Hill in April 1972.
  • Other formats: Also braille, sound recording.
