The Kelly gang have had more books written about them, then any
other Australian icon. More books written about them than any other
Bushrangers, more than any Prime Minister and even more written
about them, than Australia itself "
which book do I choose? which is best? Which is most accurate? Joe
Online now, gives you the helping hand! Every book below has been
cut out into sections, Non-Fiction and Fiction.
Also, as a guide,
we have placed a rating, of a possible five Joe helmet's, if the
book receives five Joe Helmet's, it's gospel, if it receives one
helmet, it's more than likely a shocker! Enjoy.
INNER HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG J.J KENEALLY
This book is the
original of them all! It was written all the way back in 1929, and
has sold in excess, even though the mistakes in the book can be
excused due to it's age. There has been many different publication
covers, including one very eccentric cover, with a farmer
on the cover, personally I don't know why he is there, but I am
sure it has some reason.
All summed up, for
it's age the book is quite good, interviews, are many, and are quite
good. The book deserves a good rating because J.J Keneally put in
an excellent effort, to make his dream book happen!
KELLY GANG NANCY KEESING
well well, what do they have to say for themselves, this book is
disgrace! All the content in this book has been reproduced from
original police records! I can't say anymore don't but it.......
AND DELIVER: 100 AUSTRALIAN BUSHRANGERS ALLAN
book is excellent! It covers 100 Australian bushrangers from 1799-1901,
this it has a huge page on Joe, which I, personally use for reference
to Joe's prison record; It is the best an most clearest scan I have
It also includes
Aaron Sherritt, Wild Wright and Steve Hart just to name a few. Just
get out there and buy this fantastic book!
COUNTRY BRIAN CARROLL
AND JACK MONTGOMERY
book is another great one! it gives a drawing insight which is new
includes Joe's wonderful and most beautiful spot in the whole world,
the infamous Woolshed Valley, which Joe loved so much.
Also included, is
Glenrowan, Beechworth and every where in between, this book is also
a must get on your Joe list!....
OF KELI H.M.HALL
I know what you must be thinking! The Book of Keli is fiction,
so, what's it doing in the Non-Fiction section? Okay firstly, I
thought this book, too old to be placed in the Fiction section.
So, I decided to
index it in the Non-Fiction to add some spark. This book, would
have been read by Joe, and the gang probably got a laugh out of
it. It is a funny, and characteristic book, but in all, is an enjoyable
little read moving away from " The friendship that destroyed
Ned Kelly " and is a different insight, worth a read for
the six dollars I paid........
