This is the life story of Amathea, a Western Queensland blood mare, destined for a gruelling life on the station. Amathea is not beautiful, and will probably never win a race, but she ‘can carry a heavy man for 30 miles without a blink, and she knows with the instinct of her kind how to “cut out” steers from a startled running mob.’
