Today is World Animal Day, a good opportunity to share a sneak peek of my new book. Today I received an advance copy of The Last Light Horse, due for release March 2022 with Fremantle Press.
The Last Light Horse follows the story of Sandy, the only Australian horse (of approx. 136,000) to return from World War One. Like the other three titles in my ‘Light series’ this story is illustrated by the wonderful Brian Simmonds, and features archival photographs that took me weeks to source!
Sandy was born in the alpine high country. He worked hauling bricks in Tallangatta before being donated to the war effort and becoming the favourite horse of Major General Bridges. Over the next few months, I’ll be posting more details about The Last Light Horse. In the meantime, best wishes for World Animal Day.
