Kidman leaves home at age 13 on a one-eyed horse. He grows up to own the biggest herd of cattle in Australia, and more land than the whole of England. The rags-to-riches story of one of Australia's greatest pastoral pioneers.

This is the second picture book by this award winning creative duo. They won the CBCA Eve Pownall Award 2013, for Tom the Outback Mailman.

All the best for this one too Kristin!
