9780733623431: NED KELLY - A SHORT LIFE

Ned Kelly the man, warts and all – the most vivid portrait yet of Australia’s immortal outlaw!

Author, Ian Jones, the 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 man who was seen, even in his own lifetime, as what he represented rather than what he was, and whose enemies – even more than his allies – helped to make him a legend.

This edition in the Bolinda Classics series has a new introduction and a fully revised concluding chapter.

About the Author:

Ian Jones, MBE has worked in bomb disposal for nearly four decades. As a major in the British Army he served as Commanding Officer for all bomb disposal throughout Europe. Before retiring, he was Explosives Officer for the Metropolitan Police Force. He lives in Oxfordshire, England.

From AudioFile:

If you think that it's the modern world that breeds troubled young men, think again. In Ian Jones's fascinating biography of the Australian outlaw of the 1800's, NED KELLY: A SHORT LIFE, we're reminded that trouble can find young men in any era. Narrator Paul English's melodious reading keeps the listener hooked during this admittedly long tale about a nice bad-guy. Aboriginal music between sections helps transport the listener to another time and place. This is a well-deserved 1999 Audie Award finalist. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
