Horses Too are Gone by Michael Keenan
Book DescriptionThe true story of Michael Keenan's struggle to survive against mounting odds, and an action-packed adventure that rivals any fiction. The drought had reached crisis point. Cattle farmer Mike Keenan decided there was only one solution: he would have to get his starving cattle - and his beloved horses - to greener pastures north of the border. But when he finally got there he found his troubles had only just begun. South-west Queensland seemed like a modern-day Wild West, and as Keenan moved his cattle along the traditional droving routes in search of long-term pasture, he had to match wits with a host of characters - as well as Nature herself. Mike Keenan writes with a deep passion and knowledge of Australian life on the land, tinged with a sadness and nostalgia for a way of life that is under threat. The Horses Too Are Gone will strike a chord with all Australians.
