Because there is so much of the Ned Kelly story still to come, I am going to leave it for a few days so that readers will not go into information overload.
As you may have gathered, I find the Kelly history fascinating, and not just because of the events. (For those overseas readers who do not know of Ned Kelly and the Kelly Gang, keep reading the future parts because there is a powerful climax and ending to the story). The Kelly saga is also of interest from a historical perspective in its association with other events at the the time and in its depictions of society at the time.
More to come.
