A horse called ‘Lightning Jack’ a truly Australian children’s book. Readers can follow Sam Tully as he dares to ride the free-spirited brumby called Lightning Jack on an adventure that takes young readers along for an exciting Australian ride, herding steers, rejecting a grazer’s offer to buy the midnight horse, escaping the infamous Ned Kelly and a race against race horse Phar lap!

An exquisite journey through Australia’s history with a delightful twist at the end.

Glenda Millard has outdone herself once again with a wonderful story while Patricia Mullins illustrations bring this book to life. This is a story that will happily be read again and again!
