Baringa, grandson of the mighty Silver Brumby, was frantic as the rain fell in heavy sheets, changing the river into a raging torrent. Dawn, his lovely cream filly, had been swept away in the force of the current. The longer the rain beats down, the more Baringa's hopes faded of finding Dawn alive.

This is the best of the Brumby stories I have read so far. Spring comes too early to the outback, bringing fast, deep floods. As Baringa tries to move his fillies to a safer place, Dawn slips and disappears into the flood. Desperate to find her, he seeks her in far places, fighting to survive and causing rumours of his death to circulate through the herds. Thowra, King of the Mountains, comes to investigate too, while Lightning only wants Baringa's beautiful fillies for himself.

A great little ad
My second favourite of the Brumby series, and following on from the brilliant Silver Brumbies of the South. Baringa is slowly building a beautiful herd, but he and Dawn still has more trials to face before they can live peacefully, as they still have enemies, as well as Lightning, to worry about. Baringa's increasing strength and fame amongst the brumbies of the south is exciting to behold.

I read all these books when I was a kid and was hooked, have read them as an adult and parent and its amazing the detail of australian landscapes and animals. Recommend to anyone.
Out of all the Silver brumby books this is by far my favourite in the series.

“I? I am the wind,’ said Thowra. ‘I come, I pass, and I am gone.’ The strange feathers moved up and down, the strange voice said tartly: ‘And are your sons the same?’ ‘My son is the lightning that strikes through the black night. My grandson is light that pierces the dark sky at dawning.’ ‘Ah,’ said the first emu, ‘and we know your daughter is the snow that falls softly from above and clothes the world in white. You want but the rainbow — that is and was and never will be, and is yet the promise of life — and the glittering ice which is there and is gone: then you and your family will possess all magic.” 7 likes
