    It would be hard to find a more satisfying hero than the young warrior Red Kangaroo, who by his mental and physical prowess became a chief of his tribe – the revered and powerful Red Chief of the Gunnedah district. His story is a first rate tale of adventure but it is something more – a true story handed down from generation to generation by its hero's tribe and given by the last survivor, "King" Bungaree, to the white settlers of the district.
