Equitainment's Comments

Extras at the end of the book as well as a number of old photos throughout the story.

This book is a keeper, a heart on your sleeve story about Bess, her friends Jack and Flame. It's also good to hear the New Zealand side of the war, their push and effort to ending the war.

Well done to author Susan Brocker!

Product Overview

The jet-black mare galloped wildly across the scroching white sands, the guns and shells exploding around her with a deafening roar.

Her master spurred her on, his legs tightly gripping her heaving sides. With foam-flecked lips and ears laid flat, she thundered on through the flying bullets and choking dust...

Every Anzac Day we celebrate our heroes, with many books written and stories told about the brave soldiers who fought and died in World War One. Until now the story of the loyal horses who carried our troops in the desert war has remained untold. This is their story - and the story of Bess, the only horse to return to New Zealand.
