'Jonathan King has long been a leader in resurrecting Australian history and breathing new life into it.'

--Geoffrey Blainey

'This is fantastic story from an incredible Australian. Jonathan King, a descendant of Philip Gidley King, is one of the last true eccentric Aussie "ratbags" - and we need more of them! Read the behind the scenes story of the First Fleet Re-enactment Expedition and how Jonathan's dream became a reality - despite a campaign from the hardened bureaucrats to stop it. A wonderful autobiography and a must read for everyone who loves Australia.'

--Dick Smith

'Now my mate has reached the grand old age of 70, he feels it is time to return to that campfire of old, pull up a few logs, and ask you all to sit down so he can spin a few yarns, tall tales included. As a fellow jackaroo, I recommend you give him a hearing. These are pretty good yarns.'

--Jack Thompson

'A ripping yarn about a lifetime of ripping adventures.'

--Saturday Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Canberra Times
