The Shadows Of Horses




Mike Keenan’s poignant memoir is a return to the bestselling territory of The Horses too are Gone

In The Shadows of Horses, Mike Keenan shares the inside story of what life is like on the land for today's farmers - the isolation, the agony of drought and the uncertainty about the future.

Mike's first book, The Horses too are Gone, only told a small part of his personal story. Now, through his memoir of growing up on the family property, Myall Plains, and later running it, he explores many aspects of the Australian bush and its way of life that are so close to his heart, along the way telling some terrific bush yarns as well as hair-raising anecdotes from his years on the bush racing circuit.

Ultimately this book is about Mike's own passion for - and despair over - life on the land, but he also speaks for every farmer who is doing it tough.
