AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'He sent the flint stones flying, but the pony kept his feet,

'He cleared the fallen timber in his stride,

'And the man from Snowy River never shifted in his seat-

'It was grand to see that mountain horseman ride

'There is no greater Australian bush hero than the man from Snowy River, and no greater bush legend than his famous downhill ride. 

'When a valuable colt escapes and runs off with the mountain brumbies, the crack riders and stockmen of the region get together to bring it back. But the countryside is wild and rugged and only the toughest horse and rider can keep up with the wild bush horses. (Publication summary)
