Book Description

A novella sized book (50 print pages) suitable for readers of all ages, including children, and excellent for reading aloud to younger children or students.

Flame the Fire Horse is a legendary horse of the outback whose fate was entwined with the fires that came to the heartland of Australia each year. A stockman, John, knows Flame for all of his life and records the amazing stories about the chestnut stallion before their final heart-breaking encounter.

There are also four short stories about horses that author, Leanne Owens, has known - four delightful true stories to make you laugh and cry and wonder at the magic of horses. There is a hilarious tale about Dusty, a pony who pulls a cart and teaches a bully a lesson he'll never forget. There's the tragic story of Barney and His Mate. Jingo - The Smartest Pony Ever is a tribute to one of the great ponies of the outback. The Greatest Race is an inspiring insight into the heart of a racehorse.

To finish off, there's the touching poem, 'Where Do They Go', dedicated to all horse lovers who have died and to those who wonder where they have gone. First published in 2010 in one of Australia's leading Western Horse magazines, it was written as a tribute to the horse women who died that year. If you love horses, it is sure to be one of your all time favourite poems.

A beautifully written book of horse stories suitable for all ages. Written by Leanne Owens, English teacher, equine journalist and horse breeder. Author of Horses Of The Sun, the first book in the Outback Riders series.

16,500 words. Almost 50 print pages. Contact and website details at the back of the book as Leanne Owens loves to hear from her readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare to believe February 25, 2012

Flame the Fire Horse was a lovely story, of outback ledgend born from experiences. It is not a long book, so great for younger readers. The first review sums up the book perfectly. The short stories are full of life and character. Tissues are needed for some of these stories, but well worth it.

More About the Author

Leanne Owens is an Australian writer who is also an English teacher with a Masters in Education. She has written for horse magazines for over thirty years and has also worked on a horse based tv series. Her school years were spent in Victoria and then she made her home in Queensland, first in the far outback where she met her husband and helped run his 36,000 acre sheep and cattle property, and then in the beautiful Lockyer Valley region where they raised their three children. Leanne is a well known and respected identity in the Australian horse world, having won over 30 national titles with her horses, including the famous Quarter Horse stallions Days Of Gold and Nights Of Gold (you can google them!) and also being responsible for running, on a volunteer basis, some of the premier horse shows in the country.

Leanne says she has procrastinated for over 35 years about completing all the novels in her head and it was the realisation that when she dies, the people and animals in her novels will die, too, unless she gets them into print where they can continue to live without her. It was her love of these fictional characters that finally forced her to give them the chance they deserve: to live on forever, for as long as words can live, they will give life to them (with apologies to Shakespeare).

Starting with things she knows best, children, horses and the outback, Leanne's series Outback Riders kicks off with the first book, Horses Of The Sun.
