A collection of novelettes, short stories, and poems by the author of 'Muted' and the 'Outback Riders' series. Skilfully crafted stories that capture the magic, the wonder, and the heartbreak of rural Australia and the outback. Many of the stories highlight the resilience of the girls and women who live in the outback. Moving and memorable tales that will stay with you long after the book is finished. 'Flame the Fire Horse' is the story of a legendary horse of the outback, as well as the stockman who knew him. Follow the remarkable life of the chestnut stallion and the quiet man who loved him, right up to their final heart-breaking encounter. (This story was serialised in the Australian equine magazine, 'Rider'.) 'The Moon Horses of Malaron' is the tale of Taylor, a teenage girl who is forced to move from the city to a cattle station in the outback of Queensland. The Moon Horses are a mystery that the children of the outback station, Malaron, have learned to accept, but Taylor wants to know what they are...sometimes, mysteries are best left unsolved. 'My Baloo' is the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of competing at international level on her rescue horse. Mollie knows that, first, you dream, then you plan, and then you work harder than anyone else, and, finally, if luck is on your side, you achieve. Follow Mollie from the age of twelve, all the way to the Olympics. 'The Blood Horse' is the heartbreaking story of what happens to a family and a horse when tragedy strikes in the form of a riding accident. 'Blood in the Dust' covers a typical day in the outback life of a woman on a station, with a shocking twist at the end. 'The Governess: Letters Home from the Station' covers the life of a young woman who goes west to governess, and settles in the outback, finding a resilience within herself that is needed to survive all that the land throws at her, from droughts all the way to the devastating outback floods of 2019. There are also some true stories to make you laugh and wonder at the magic of horses, including a hilarious tale about Dusty, a pony who teaches a bully a lesson he'll never forget. There's the tragic story of Barney and His Mate, horses who deserved better. Jingo - The Smartest Pony Ever is a tribute to one of the great ponies of the outback. The Greatest Horse Race is an inspiring insight into the heart of an outback racehorse. There is a small collection of poems at the end of the book. The poem, 'Where Do the Riders Go?' has been read aloud at the services for horse people all over the world, and 'A Billion Atoms' has been inspiring readers since it was first written in 2018. 'Flame the Fire Horse and Other Horse Stories' is written by Leanne Owens, English teacher, equine journalist and writer for Horse Talk TV. Leanne is the author of the popular Outback Riders series (Horses Of The Sun, Horses Of The Light, and Horses Of The Fire). Leanne's latest release, 'Muted' is about an Australian horseman who decides he has to find a way to free 1,200 stallions held by a U.S. pharmaceutical company, while the heir to the company is determined to stop him - this inspiring tale of transformation, resilience, friendship, and love is a can't-put-it-down read that will hold your interest for all of its 400+ pages. The paperback version of Flame makes a wonderful gift for people who like horses and an excellent trophy for horse clubs.

Whimsical and revolutionary poems and art by some of Russia's foremost avant-garde writers and illustrators A boy wants a toy horse big enough to ride, but where can his father find it? Not in the stores, which means it’s got to be built from scratch. How? With the help of expert workers, from the carpenter to the painter, working together as one. And now the bold boy is ready to ride off in defense of the future! Two trams, Click and Zam, are cousins. Click goes out for a day on the tracks and before long he’s so tired he doesn’t know where he is or how to get back. All he knows is he’s got to find Zam. Click is looking for Zam and Zam is looking for Click, and though for a while it seems like nobody knows where to find Click, good and faithful Zam is not to be deterred. Peter’s a car, Vasco’s a steamboat, and Mikey’s a plane. They’re all running like mad and going great guns until, whoops, there’s a big old cow, just a plain old cow, standing in the road. What then? The early years of the Soviet Union were a golden age for children’s literature. The Fire Horse brings together three classics from the era in which some of Russia’s most celebrated poets, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Osip Mandelstam, and Daniil Kharms, teamed up with some of its finest artists, Lidia Popova, Boris Ender, and Vladimir Konashevich. Brilliantly translated by the poet Eugene Ostashevsky, this is poetry that is as whimsical and wonderful as it is revolutionary.

The Fire Horse No One Wanted the Horse Named Neville Then Along Came a Rider Who Lived for Long Shots

The Fire Horse  No One Wanted the Horse Named Neville  Then Along Came a Rider Who Lived for Long Shots

If ever a horse seemed fated to die young, it was Neville Bardos. Unwanted as a racehorse, he appeared a likely candidate for the glue factory. Through luck and hard work, he dodged that bad ending to become a surprise contender for the 2012 U.S. Olympic team in equestrian eventing. Then, on May 30, 2011, the barn he shared with ten other horses began to burn. Neville's lungs were scorched black, and he faced the fight of his life just to survive. Future glory was surely nothing but an empty dream. Or was it? "The Fire Horse" is the true story of a friendship between horse and rider so strong that it has carried them through their respective hard times to the brink of legend. Australian Boyd Martin saw a streak of potential no one else had seen in the stubborn and unpredictable horse. He bought him for $850 and named him, fittingly, after a notorious local gangster. And so began a relationship that had its share of ups and downs. Martin was something of a long shot himself, having once pretended to be an expert on breaking horses on the basis of a single book he read on the way to taking a job as a trainer. Over the years, he and Neville developed a hard-won appreciation for each other and appeared to be on the verge of success on the competitive equestrian circuit when the unthinkable happened. Now they're in London as members of the U.S. Olympic team. "The Fire Horse," by bestselling author Elizabeth Mitchell, is the deeply moving chronicle of a horse and his rider and their determined rise from the ashes. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Elizabeth Mitchell is the author of the nonfiction books "Three Strides Before the Wire: The Dark and Beautiful World of Horse Racing" and "W.: Revenge of the Bush Dynasty" (both from Hyperion). Her bestselling Byliner Original e-single "The Fearless Mrs. Goodwin" is a reported historical narrative. Mitchell was executive editor of "George" magazine and features editor at "Spin" magazine. She lives in Brooklyn, New York. PRAISE FOR "THE FIRE HORSE" Elizabeth Mitchell has crafted far more than a tale about a gifted horse and rider in the world of eventing. This is the heartwarming story about an imperishable bond between a man and his horse-one that began when Boyd Martin acquired a failed racehorse off the track, turned him into an eventing star, and then saved the life of this game and gutsy charge when he was trapped in his burning stall during a terrible stable fire. Neville Bardos's remarkable comeback under the devoted Martin, as a U.S. Olympic hopeful in the 2012 eventing competition, gives the tale an ending as warm and unlikely as any in equine literature." -William Nack, author of "Secretariat: The Making of a Champion"

A perplexing case of murder and conspiracy in the pagan wilds of Northern Italy In 664 A.D., just after the events detailed in Shroud for the Archbishop, Fidelma of Cashel takes a unexpected detour on her trip home from Rome. While in the port at Genua (modern day Genoa), Fidelma—sister of one Ireland's kings and an advocate in her country's law courts—receives word that one of her old teachers, Brother Ruadan, is reaching the end of his days. Determined to see her old mentor one last time, Fidelma takes the treacherous journey to a remote abbey in the countryside—a place where the old pagan religion still has a hold and where even the Christians are often in bloody conflict with each other. But after she hears her dying teacher's last words, Fidelma's most dangerous adventure has just begun. With one murder after the next and a vicious war in the offing, it is up to Fidelma, alone and on her own, to unravel an extraordinary conspiracy before it is too late.
