NB: This is the abridged version. PLEASE NOTE that there is no announcement of the title and author at the start of the book. It goes straight into the story after some music. This story is the song of Australia, and it sings its protest in a voice at once crude and delicate, menacing and heart-wrenching. The author gives us Ned Kelly as orphan, as Oedipus, as horse thief, farmer, bushranger, reformer, bank-robber, police-killer and as his country's Robin Hood.
