The Australian Robin Hood can be viewed either as a vicious and cold-blooded thug or as a romantic champion of the underdog. The Kelly myth has clearly taken hold of the Australian imagination and also, through Sidney Nolan's now famous series of paintings, seized th world. In this biography, Charles Osborne begins with a discussion of hte legend and its importance to Australians, then proceeds to an account of Kelly's childhood, the formation of the Gang under police persecution, and its great popular success. The siege at Glenrowan, Kelly's last stand, is described in detail, as well as his final trial and execution. There follows an appendix of extracts from the Royal Commission report after Kelly's death, and another of contemporary folk songs celebrating the exploits of the bold Kelly Gang. The many illustrations are mostly photographs of the time. Charles Osborne's book is the first complete and analytical study of the Australian bandit to be written. It will be appreciated as the definitive biography.' 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction, Modern First Editions.; Non-fiction, History.; Non-fiction, Australia.
