DANIKA AND YATIMAH FROM EGYPT TO THE OUTBACK
by Carmel Rowley
Book One of the As the Crow Flies series
Living in outback Australia on a vast cattle station, Yatimah is Danika's grey Arabian mare.
Yatimah is the most beautiful and intelligent and the most loved horse on Dalry Station. To Danika, Yatimah is perfect.
The first time Danika saw Yatimah she could hardly believe her eyes. Gleaming silver-grey against the red outback soil, Yatimah galloped into her life and stole her heart, beginning a special friendship. Little did Danika know-the finely made Arabian mare would prove to be as brave and true as her heritage suggested.
Share in the beauty, fear, excitement, danger, fun, tears and friends, with the adventures of Danika and Yatimah.
