Product Details:

"With Ned Kelly as narrator, this is the heart-rending story of a young boy growing up in the grinding poverty of colonial Victoria and of a young man defiantly resisting the wealth and power of those who wish to destroy him. Undoubtedly Australia's most potent legend, this mythic hero and outlaw here is simply a man in full: devoted son, fretful father, and loyal friend, now speaking as if from the grave.

Internationally acclaimed, True History of the Kelly Gang, written in the idiom of the famous Jerilderee letter, is a breathless adventure, both a lament and a tribute, a boy's defence of his mother, and a man's confiding letter to a daughter he will never meet."
