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
But, 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.
MAN BRIAN RIDDEN
book is absouletly fantastic! Even knowing that it's fiction, you
may be under the
imprsseion ' Oh-No, not more of Carey's crap ' But wait! you are
running a mile away from a fantastic, well written and most of all
correct fictional book on the Kelly gang.
The main character
is a young orphan named Garrett, and he meet's Ned and Joe, in Beechworth
he was 15.
As the blurb says:
" Ned Kelly
rode into Beechworth, one, cold clear Saturday and changed my life,
I was 15 then "
Soon, Garrett finds
himeself one of the most active Kelly sympathisers, and is with
the gang right up until the bitter end at Glenrowan. In all seriousness
this book is a ripper buy it!.....

TRUE History, come on! when it's nothing but a load of FICTION.
claims that he got his insperation, from Joe and Ned's Jerilderie
Letter, can I ask one question? In the name of god, where in
Joe and Ned's writing does it say that:
Dan and Steve were homosexual with each other, and wore womens clothes.
Ned's father was a cross dresser? Where in the Jerilderie
letter do you get a glimpse of

book, well, basically for anything. Enough said!.....
