Picked this book because Humphrey Bower was narrating. He is on my very very very short list of favorite voices. This story is wonderful; however I believe that this author could have made this into an exceptional book by reducing the amount of characters and going in-depth with main characters.
I just felt that I had not gotten to know anyone in within this novel.

Would you listen to The Waddi Tree again? Why?
If you did your "apprenticeship" as a Jackaroo in the 60's or before, you will relive the skills, demands, responsibilities, and sheer hard work of a cattle man.
It brought back memories. The descriptions were accurate (notwithstanding the geography), and the characters were spot on.
As they say…you had to be there to understand.
If you’ve listened to books by Kerry McGinnis before, how does this one compare?
First book I have listened to.
Have you listened to any of Humphrey Bower’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Bower is outstanding!!!
Far and away the top narrator in the world.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Laughed out loud with some of the typical Aussie humour.
Any additional comments?
Kerry McGinnis either did a great deal of research or was really there at the time.

A truly beautiful, well rounded coming of age story that will break your heart and mend it again. If you liked Shena Mackay's The Orchard on Fire, you will love this. I cannot fault it.
