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!
