This book is about Australia's wild horses-brumbies- and the intense culture war that has erupted around their future. Anthony Sharwood encounter brumbies first hand and as he started to investigate the issue and spent time with people on both sides of the debate, he realised that for all of them there is so much more at stake.

For those enraptured by the legend of the Man from Snowy River, descendants of cattle families and many Australians in urban and regional areas, brumbies are a symbol of wildness, freedom and a vanishing way of life. To ecologists and people who ski, walk and fish in the High Country and other areas where brumbies proliferate they are a menace that must be removed to save delicate landscapes.

Something has to give but what? The land or the horses?

The Brumby Wars is a riveting account of this major national issue and the very human passions it inspires. It is also a quest to find common ground in our increasingly polarised country.
