The story of Australias Most notorious Legend

 

Love him or loathe him, Ned Kelly has been at the heart of Australian culture and identity since he and his gang were tracked down in bushland by the Victorian police and came out fighting, dressed in bulletproof iron armour made from farmers ploughs.

Historians still disagree over virtually every aspect of the eldest Kelly boy s brushes with the law. Did he or did he not shoot Constable Fitzpatrick at their family home? Was he a lawless thug or a noble Robin Hood, a remorseless killer or a crusader against oppression and discrimination? Was he even a political revolutionary, an Australian republican channelling the spirit of Eureka?

Peter FitzSimons, bestselling chronicler of many of the great defining moments and people of this nation s history, is the perfect person to tell this most iconic of all Australian stories. From Kelly s early days in Beveridge, Victoria, in the mid-1800s, to the Felons Apprehension Act, which made it possible for anyone to shoot the Kelly gang, to Ned s appearance in his now-famous armour, prompting the shocked and bewildered police to exclaim He is the devil! and He is the bunyip!
