This is a story any boy or girl could enjoy. It tells of Joey, a small kangaroo whose mother is killed before she can fully impart to him all that knowledge that bush creatures need in order to fend for and protect themselves. Joey goes through many vicissitudes—attack by men and by dingoes, capture, gunshot wounds—before he comes to rule his fellows, and by a hard-won victory over a rival animal, becomes King of the Ranges.From the book
