    Description
    In 1870, a 13-year-old boy from South Australia ran away from home with only five shillings in his pocket. He went on to become, at various times in his life, a horse dealer, drover, cattle buyer and bush jockey, and also ran a coach business.

    Above all, however, he created a mighty cattle empire of more than a hundred stations in outback Australia, equivalent in area to England, Scotland and Wales - fighting droughts, bushfires, floods and plagues of rats and rabbits to do so. His enterprise and courage won him a huge fortune and made him a legend - Sir Sidney Kidman, the Cattle King.

    This book is the engrossing story of this remarkable Australian's life, and an inspiring tribute to one man's determination.
