“Ned Kelly is perhaps the most controversial figure in Australian history.  One hundred years after he went to the gallows his life and deeds remain the subject of bitter dispute.  Was he simply a petty criminal, a horse stealer, larrikin and murderer of brave men?  Or was he the triumphant embodiment of what Manning Clark has called the ‘life of the fearless, the free and the bold’ – the last outlaw and greatest of Australia’s rebel sons?
The story of Ned Kelly has become embroidered with folklore and romance, while historians have disagreed passionately in their judgement of the man.
This collection of authentic archive photographs and contemporary illustrations is concerned with the real Edward Kelly, bushranger and fugitive.  It enables us to see, as far as will ever be possible, how Ned Kelly appeared to people in his own lifetime, before the man was replaced by the legend.”
