Ned Kelly: The Iron Outlaw

Most Australians know something about Ned Kelly – his gang’s final shoot out with police at Glenrowan, Ned in his iron armour then down by troopers shooting at his exposed legs, his subsequent trial and hanging in Melbourne – it’s a story often told. But did you know that Ned was planning a republic of North-east Victoria? That many of the settlers in the area were ready to take on the establishment and form their own independent state? That Ned’s ‘life of crime’ can be linked to the gross corruption of the colonial Victorian police force. Historian Brad Webb has written the essential guide to the Kelly legacy, with rarely seen images. This book is a must for any library. and has plenty to offer to those who think they know the full story of the Kelly Gang.
