Product description

A book to make you love horses even more than you did before. Did we mention that it’s inspired by Morpurgo’s War Horse? Our favourite Aussie writer tells the tale of an Australian war horse, Daisy, and her young owner. In 1914, Daisy and sixteen-year-old Will are sent from the Outback to the gruelling Middle Eastern campaign of the First World War. Their skill in finding water is vital to their desert regiment. They will face thirst, cruelty, horror and terrible hardship. Yet through desert heat and bloody conflict, their friendship survives… If you’ve read Once, you’ll know how good this is going to be. Tip: you might want to keep a box of tissues nearby.
