Description - True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey

'I lost my own father at 12 yr. of age and know what it is to be raised on lies and silence...' To the authorities in pursuit of him, outlaw Ned Kelly is a horse thief, bank robber and police-killer. But to his fellow ordinary Australians, Kelly is their own Robin Hood. In a dazzling act of ventriloquism, Peter Carey brings the famous bushranger wildly and passionately to life.

Buy True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
