BOOK RELEASE NED KELLY THE IRON OUTLAW

Ned Kelly The Iron Outlaw
By Brad Webb

Most Australians know something about Ned Kelly – his
gang’s final shoot out with the police at Glenrowan, Ned in
his iron armour taken down by troopers shooting at his
exposed legs, his subsequent trial and hanging in
Melbourne – it’s a story often told.

But did you know that Ned was planning a republic of
north-east Victoria? That many of the settlers in the area
were ready to take on the establishment and form their
own independent state? That Ned’s ‘life of crime’ can be
linked to the gross corruption of the colonial Victorian
police force?

In Ned Kelly—The Iron Outlaw readers learn more
about one of the world’s most influential Irish and arguably
Australia’s best-known historical figure—with details from
his early years to the harsh justice that resulted in his
demise, as well as interesting details and trivia about the
notorious outlaw throughout.

This book is a must for any library, and has plenty to offer
those who think they know the full story of the Kelly Gang
