AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Shane and his friend, Red, live on a cattle station in the Kimberleys. The two are bound by their love of horses and their relationship with the land, under threat by the demands of big business. Shane discovers a herd of wild horses, and his determination to capture them is the pivot for an engrossing story about land rights and race relations.' (Publication summary)
