Sidney Kidman runs away from home at thirteen and travels to the outback on a one-eyed horse. He finds stray cows in the scrub, swims across rivers by hanging on to a bullock's tail and dreams of having the biggest herd of cattle in Australia. Many years later, when the workers on Sid's cattle station organise a giant rodeo for Sid's birthday party the cattle from the bush take fright in the city. People panic and horses bolt. Can the Kidman stockmen save the day? King of the Outback tells the rags to riches story of one of Australia's greatest pastoral pioneers.

Read this wonderful review in The Advertiser, accompanied by a photograph of Sidney Kidman's great-great-grand daughter reading King of the Outback to her children.
