It would be hard to find a more satisfying hero than the young warrior Red Kangaroo, who by his mental and physical prowess became a chief of his tribe – the revered and powerful Red Chief of the Gunnedah district. His story is a first rate tale of adventure but it is something more – a true story handed down from generation to generation by its hero's tribe and given by the last survivor, "King" Bungaree, to the white settlers of the district.

"Every Australian should read/listen to this book"
The Red Chief was one of our family's favorite audiobooks, we enjoyed it from beginning to end - even the small children.
We enjoyed the suspense, the highly descriptive images, and the respect that we gained for the Australian Aboriginal through reading and understanding their original way of life.
There were many great scene's in this book, its hard to pick a favorite, but I guess the stand out scene is where the Red Chief rescues his tribe from destruction through quick and clever decision making, and goes on to strengthen his tribe and give them long standing security.
