Synopsis

Snow Pony by Alison Lester

Only Dusty can ride the wild Snow Pony. And no one but Dusty will trust her. Three years of drought have reduced the Riley's farm to a dirt patch and strained the family to breaking point. A trip to the mountains to muster their cattle promises a fresh start, but sudden violence erupts into the peaceful landscape. Now Dusty and her beautiful brumby are tested as never before. 'Lester tells a gripping yarn, brimming with classic pictures. Dusty emerges as a true mountain girl with a new friend who can match her in courage.' Australian Book Review
