Description

The ultimate book for anyone interested in Ned Kelly and his life; Contains scores of original photographs and words from the protagonists themselves, and details Kelly's short but memorable life from start to finish Self-confessed horse thief, a bank robber who admitted shooting dead a policeman, and the leader of a notorious gang of outlaws, Ned Kelly is a character that generates fascination and controversy not only in his native Australia but worldwide. Keith McMenomy has spent twenty years assembling an unrivalled selection of Kelly paraphernalia - with over 330 illustrations - piecing together authentic accounts to form a complete picture of Kelly and his gang. He illuminates the continuing argument over whether Kelly was merely a spectacular and hardened criminal or a symbol of rebellion from repression, the embodiment of the Australian ideal of 'the fearless, the free and the bold'.

Author Biography

Keith McMenomy's interest in Ned Kelly was sparked off by an assignment at art school in Melbourne. He has spent the twenty years since collecting material and travelling through 'Kelly Country' to photograph the locations as they survive today.
