Pictorially-illustrated, loose-plastic protected dustjacket bumped as boards, else trivial edgewear. With wit, honesty and immediacy, Lizzie Spender, tells of a story that began when she was eight and given money to buy a pony. This never eventuated, however, years later, flying in a helicopter over the remote, ancient Kimberley country in north-western Australia, she spotted a magnificent wild chestnut horse below. With the property owner's best wishes, she attempts the impossible-find, capture, bring it in, train it, and transport this beautiful specimen thousands of kilometers to a new home in Sydney...Contents in chaptered 'parts'.
