Elyne Mitchell, OAM (born Sibyl Elyne Chauvel on 30 December 1913 Melbourne, Victoria - died 4 March .

Elyne Mitchell, OAM (born Sibyl Elyne Chauvel on 30 December 1913 Melbourne, Victoria - died 4 March 2002 Corryong, Victoria) was an Australian author noted for the "Silver Brumby" series of children's novels. Set in the Snowy Mountains area of the Australian Alps around Mount Kosciuszko in southern New South Wales and northern Victoria, the books recount the life of the pale palomino brumby stallion "Thowra" from his birth in "The Silver Brumby" (first published 1958) to "Silver Brumby Whirlwind".

Elyne Mitchell is best remembered for her Silver Brumby series of children's novels. She wrote the first book, The Silver Brumby, for her daughter Indi.

  • Set during the time before white sailors discovered Australia, the story follows a dingo cub, Jinki, who roams the snowy south-east mountains of Australia. At certain times of year the Aboriginal people travel up here and enjoy the summer hillside life, and Jinki makes a friend of one lad. The changing seasons are well described, and the wildlife and natural environment.

    This is a great book for young readers and will also be enjoyed by adults who like reading about nature or who are fans of Elyne Mitchell.

    You may also enjoy Wild Brother by Mary Elwyn Pachett, a story about dingoes, and Ajax The Warrior, the true story of her own half-dingo dog.

  • Jinki is a pale golden dingo pup who meets a little Aboriginal boy. The pup is too young to take from his mother so the boy, Koonda, has to leave him, but over the next few years Jinki, descended from the dogs brought over by early settlers, remembers the human hand and scent and makes it his business to meet kind Koonda again. Jinki also has a mate to consider, Kyiriee, and the two dingos roam over the south-west mountains. Jinki was born high in the mountains and so he keeps returning there when most other dingos stay lower down in Geehi.
    As usual with Elyne Mitchell the written descriptions of the landscape are beautiful and breathtaking and the animals of the bush are faithfully brought to life. Jinki is set at a time before the white man came to Australia so there are no horses or cattle and the dark men and women move freely, hunting and smoking out the Bogong moths to eat. There are many dingos in this tale unlike the brumby books, which makes me think that the white man must have reduced their numbers as a threat to stock.
    The winters are very hard and snow falls unseasonably heavily after dry summers, possibly a reflection of El Nino weather currents.

    At the time that Mitchell wrote this she had completed her first four Silver Brumby books and Moon Filly, and Jinki does not have the animals speaking verbally, but the use of sounds, body language and physical contact does the speaking for them.
    This is a good book for learning about the Australian bush - another would be Kingfisher Feather about twins on a cattle station who travel into the high country.
    Another author who wrote about dingoes is Mary Elwyn Pachett who wrote Ajax the Warrior about her own dog and Wild Brother a fictional story. Dingoes also feature in Finn The Wolfhound by AJ Cronin.
