review 1: Rural Australia/romance/adventure, a theme which seems to have quite suddenly made it to 'genre.' I take little notice of what is called 'Women's Fiction' as a rule, but this book - I loved this book, and will look for more from this author. I enjoyed the background, I enjoyed that horses and dogs were also characters, and I enjoyed the scenery. A prevailing theme is the idiocy of trying to run the country from the city, and by bureaucrats who simply do not know what they are doing. Countrymen have begun to despise 'Greenies' for good reason. It ends with a great climax, and a happier ending than happened in fact. Right now, National Parks are still overrun with weeds and feral animals, fire-tracks have been obliterated so that fires burn hotter and more damaging than they... more used to be when the High Country was used by cattlemen, and people are over-charged for the simple pleasure of visiting parts of our own land that should belong to us all - not to National Parks bureaucracy.
review 2: I absolutely loved this book! I'm a city girl and I really felt that Rachael Treasure brought the high plains to life. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. It was obvious that the author is coming from the cattlemen's perspective in the debate regarding the debate surrounding cattle in the high plains but that was okay with me as I presumed that would be the case as soon as I read the blurb on the back of the book. less
