Editor reviews

Author and screenwriter Ian Jones offers a detailed, in-depth look at bushranger Ned Kelly, a uniquely Australian outlaw celebrated in some circles as a folk hero while condemned as a murderer in others. Listeners fascinated by Ned Kelly and the layers of legend around him will appreciate Jones’ historical research, masterful sense of storytelling, and sympathetic yet even-handed account. Performer Paul English brings a crisp enunciation and lilting accent to the story of one of Australia’s most famous figures, whose words at the gallows - "Tell ‘em I died game" - have become an Australian catchphrase.

Summary

Simultaneous release of the updated edition featuring new introductory material. Ned Kelly the man - warts and all - the most vivid portrait yet of Australia's immortal outlaw! Author, Ian Jones, acknowledged Kelly authority, shares with us the results of a lifetime's research.
For the first time, Ned Kelly truly emerges as a man - a man who hated conflict yet never escaped it. A private man incapable of being ordinary and unnoticed. A man who was seen, even in his own lifetime, as what he represented rather than what he was.

The making of a legend

A fascinating story, well told. The narrator's 'Oirish' accents are cringeworthy, but otherwise it is easy listening and the story is compelling.
