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.

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
