Author Elizabeth Benney was a brat of a child. She’s completely candid about it – selfcentred, perverse, wilful, obstinate … living for her passion – horses. It’s a life-story that at last faces up to what we all must confront. What will it be, in our own advancing years, which we will be forced to give up? Will she ever learn to say ‘No more’? She portrays her day-to-day life running their New England horse farm, and the many return visits to her own country, New Zealand. Then there are her accounts of her girlhood, her forays into the Antarctic and into deepest China, and her extraordinary capacity for attracting memorable characters. Throughout it all is the undying ‘can do’ spirit of her pioneering forbears. About the author Elizabeth Benney was born in New Plymouth and now lives in the US running a horse farm in New England. She was a top rider and judge with a lifetime love of horses. Other titles include Reaching Summit Rock and Seventy-Something Acres. This 2011 Cape Catley Paperback is in Mint condition.
