The epic tale in a new revised and expanded edition!
Available for the first time as a print-on-demand title, Glenrowan has never been more accessible to a global audience!
This new edition restores passages omitted from the first edition as well as supplementary material and brand new illustrations to sink you deeper into the world of the Kelly Gang. This is not just a novel — this is an experience in paperback form.
Each character is a real person who was involved in the Kelly saga, depicted in depth and detail — from the romantic and brash Joe Byrne, to the wily innkeeper Ann Jones, and the daring schoolteacher Thomas Curnow and beyond. Follow the dramatic downfall of Ned Kelly and witness the terrifying ripple effect. Outlaws, police, trackers, sympathisers and civilians all take centre stage to produce the most immersive and fully realised depiction of the world of the Kelly Gang yet put to print.
This is the definitive edition of the most historically accurate Kelly novel ever written. Based on years of research, Glenrowan doesn’t rely on gimmicks to grab the reader’s attention. No circuses, no cross-dressing, no made-up characters, no historical revisionism — just a human story based on real events and real people.
Every blood-soaked moment of the siege is brought vividly to life in a fusion of real history, symbolism and speculation to tell the full, incredible, true story of the demise of Australia’s most infamous outlaws. This is not a history textbook. This is dirt-under-the-nails realism hurling you into a world more than 140 years in the past and it can be yours.
