Book description

"I do not think that anyone alive in our time will ever forget Ned Kelly. I know I never shall. Was he a hero? Was he a villain? I cannot say, even now. But he will live in my memory forever, the dark and the bright, together
North-east Victoria, 1879. Jamie Ross and his older sister Ellen are alone in the world after the death of their father. Determined to make their fortune, they head to Beechworth—and straight into the midst of the search for Ned Kelly, the most notorious bushranger of all time. A chance encounter will bring Jamie closer to the outlaw than he could ever have imagined.
