Two classic tales of adventurous animals - a wild red heifer and a dingo/kelpie cross.
First published in 1931, 'Man Shy' tells the story of a young red heifer who flees the grazing herd for a life of adventure on the open ranges. First published in 1946, 'Dusty' tells the story of a dingo/kelpie cross who is employed to muster sheep but is forever at war with his wild instincts.
Told with great sensitivity and insight, these two short novels have delighted generations of adults and children alike. Both books entertain while at the same time providing a penetrating analogy to humankind.
