- DescriptionTo 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 Mitchellâ²s birth and contains The Silver Brumby and three other favourite Brumby books: Silver Brumbyâ²s 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 Australiaâ²s 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.
- Author BiographyInspired 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.
