“Brian Carroll has gone to the original sources – contemporary newspaper accounts, personal reminiscences, police reports – to retell the Kelly story as faithfully and as factually as possible. What emerges is a complete biography of Ned Kelly and an authentic account of one of the most fascinating episodes in Australia’s past. Here is all the excitement that captured the imagination of an emerging nation, together with the other, not so well-known side of the story: the hard, dangerous (and sometimes fatal) work of the colonial police, both black and white, during their desperate search for the wanted men.
Ned Kelly: Bushranger is lavishly illustrated with photographs, line drawings and engravings from contemporary sources.”
