The Story of Ned Kelly
On the 140th anniversary of the demise of Australia’s most famous bushranger, this powerful graphic account with its evocative engravings tells the story of Ned Kelly from his point of view. Ned Kelly (1855–1880), Australian Bushranger, son of Irish settlers, and symbol of resistance against the British Empire. He sowed disorder in the State of Victoria and defied the colonial order by redistributing to the poorest the spoils of misdeeds committed by his gang, before finally being arrested and hanged at the age of twenty-five. His was a short and remarkable life, in which a frantic bush escapade made him an icon.
