Following the disappearance of her mother when she was a young child, Drift has been raised by her father, growing up to work alongside him as an itinerant cattle drover along the beautiful coastline of remote Western Australia. It's a tough life, but nurtured and taught by two wise women - Wilma, a gentle travelling librarian and straight-talking Charlie, the legendary mobile saddler - Drift grows up to become a confident young woman.

But the world Drift lives in can be confronting. After a frightening assault, Drift meets a handsome young stockman, but he is not all that he seems and she is drawn into a baffling world of lies and mysteries, centring on a lushly beautiful property called The Planet. When she's suddenly left alone in the world, Drift has to find the courage to make her own way. Drawing upon the deep well of wisdom taught her by Charlie and Wilma, Drift has to overcome heartbreak, betrayal, loneliness and pain in order to forge her path, own her truth, and create the kind of world that she wants to live in.

Full of authentic Australian heart and soul, warmth and humour, White Horses isanother classic from the much-loved author of the iconic and bestselling novels Jillaroo and The Farmer's Wife, one that also offers an inspiring vision of a vibrant, thriving rural Australia based on Treasure's own experience and knowledge of regenerative agriculture.
