Publisher's Summary

This book is an inspiring tribute to the remarkable life of Sir Sidney Kidman - the Cattle King.

At the age of 13 Sidney Kidman ran away from home with only five shillings in his pocket. He went on to become a horse dealer, drover, cattle buyer and bush jockey and he also ran a coach business. Above all Kidman created a mighty cattle empire of more than a hundred stations, fighting droughts, bushfires, floods and plagues of vermin to do so. His enterprise and courage won him a huge fortune and made him a legend.

    "good read"

    A story that is only half told . Could have had more detail off the people he was involved with.
    But never the less I still enjoyed it .

    "bit short"

    Good listen but I was expecting a longer more detailed description of Kidman's life. and the sound effects can be overpowering at times especially the bloody cockies.

    Story
    "Australia's best bush businessman"

    I've read the hardcover book, and now this, and loved both. There were quite a few stories missed in the audible version, so if you enjoyed this then do yourself a favour and get a copy of the paper book!
    A great man, a great life, and well worth a listen!
