Danika’s life has been turned upside down by the drought. With no alternative, her family are forced to leave Dalry to wander the stock routes, grazing their cattle on the long paddock.
While on the road, Danika decides to race Yatimah at the Quilpie show, this action sets in motion a series of cagey goings-on. At the same time, she’s determined to return home.
With nothing to lose, she enters Yatimah in the Blackall races and accepts an invitation to compete in a final challenge. But this last race has an outcome no one would have imagined.

DANIKA AND YATIMAH FROM EGYPT TO THE OUTBACK
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.
