New! The Wild Grass
by Graeme Brasher
When you are bred to be eaten, freedom is your only hope.
Set on a farm on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, Graeme Brasher’s The Wild Grass is the stirring tale of twin lambs’ attempts to escape their fate. The lambs live alongside the human family who own them and the wild animals who make their living on the periphery of the farm.
Sam had never liked the way the livestock on the farm were treated. She understood that the animals were her parents’ livelihood and that nothing much could be done about it; still, their fate troubled her. When her father herded them into the yards for drenching, tailing, or drafting, she mostly bit her lip and turned a blind-eye to the harshness of it all.
Feral cats and scavenger crows threaten, but it is the humans who care for them that pose the gravest threat. When flooding leads to plans for the early dispatch of the lambs to market, the twins are forced to recognize that their lives are at risk.
Each must now make choices that mean the difference between life and death. Sanctuary lies a long perilous journey away. Can the Untamed lead them to safety?
