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.

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!

Not unabridged - great story though

Great story and well told. At times the background sound effects can be too much, but mostly I didn't mind them.
However, very disappointed that the book was advertised as "unabridged" and is very clearly not.

Disappointing

Not enough detail and to much background noise can barely hear the narrator. There is no talk about any of the stations in detail
