Kelly Country: A Photographic Journey
More than any other story in Australian history, the Kelly Outbreak is strongly associated with places: the bush of North-Eastern Victoria, Glenrowan (the small hamlet made famous by the Last Stand), the Woolshed (the home of the Byrnes and Sherrits) and, above all, Greta West, the home of the Kellys. There are also the pubs where gang members drank, the courthouses where they faced the judge, the gaols where they served time and the drop at Old Melbourne Gaol where Ned Kelly was executed. Many of the places associated with the Kelly story are still with us today, tangible reminders of a story that resonates strongly with many Australians.This book looks at the Kellys and their history through images of the places associated with the outbreak of bushranging - from busy to country towns, from squatters' mansions to ruined homesteads, from the gaols to the cemeteries. In doing so, it brings a new perspective to the Kelly story.
