Editorial Reviews

Caroline Lee gives a heartfelt performance of Elyne Mitchell’s The Colt from Snowy River. Her clear voice highlights the descriptive prose. The Reid children live on the Snowy River homestead, where they keep their beloved thoroughbred bay colt called Buzz. One day, the wild filly Yarrawa lures the colt away into the Snowy Mountains. The children set out to recover Buzz, who does not have the survival skills to navigate the desolate landscape on his own. Will the children reach him before he succumbs to the cold winter climate?

Publisher's Summary

When Buzz, a thoroughbred bay colt from the Snowy River homestead, is lured into the wild by the beautiful and independent filly Yarrawa, the Reid children are heartbroken. They head out into the previously unexplored country of the Snowy Mountains in search of their beloved and valuable colt. Will they find him? Will Buzz be able to survive in the wild?

Critic Reviews

"Caroline Lee enthusiastically and energetically narrates this recording....Lee's voice walks, trots, canters, and gallops through the story, as appropriate to the action. Young horse lovers will relish this story." ( School Library Journal)
