Shadows of Horses by Michael Keenan

Book Description

Mike's first book, The Horses Too Are Gone, only told a small part of his personal story. Now, through his memoir of growing up on the family property, Myall Plains, and later running it, Mike explores many themes of the Australian bush and its way of life: the changes over the years and the end of bush culture, the degradation of the environment and, on a personal note, his relationship with his domineering, volatile father. Ultimately this book is about Mike's own passion for - and despair over - life on the land, but he also speaks for every farmer who is doing it tough.
