Lennie the Legend
My latest Heritage Heroes title, Lennie the Legend: Solo to Sydney by Pony, is now available. It tells the inspiring story of the remarkable solo journey of Lennie Gwyther, who in 1932 rode his pony, Ginger Mick, almost 1,000 kilometres from Leongatha in Victoria to Sydney in New South Wales just to see the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Lennie was launched with a book signing and reading at the National Library of Australia on Sunday, 22 March 2015. Information about the book is available at http://publishing.nla.gov.au/book/lennie-the-legend-solo-to-sydney-by-pony.do. It also featured in an article by Carolyn Webb in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald: http://www.smh.com.au/national/the-nineyearold-who-rode-a-pony-1000km-to-sydney-20150122-12v3kq.html.
