Another book out soon
"Now, for the first time, and in brilliant prose that brings these historical episodes to life, Black Snake challenges the legend of Ned Kelly. Instead of celebrating an heroic man of the people, it gives voice to the victims of a merciless gang of outlaws."

Yawn!!!!

Leo can’t even be original with his title, having ‘borrowed’ it from an earlier Kelly book!

Black Snake: The daring of Ned Kelly
by Carole Wilkinson
Published 1st December 2005

One would hope this book be listed in the ‘fiction’ section, as Leo Kennedy has no factual knowledge of the Kelly Outbreak and has consistently claimed that the Kelly Gang sat around his great grandfather Sgt. Michael Kennedy for some six and a half hours torturing him before killing him and that Ned cut off one of Kennedy’s ears.
Leo may shed some light on his family and the struggles his great grandmother would have faced losing her husband, but that is where Leo’s knowledge would end.

Channel 10's Project had a story last evening (11th) with Leo and Joanne Griffiths "featured".
The book draws for its title the words "Black snake" which Ned used in his letter to Babington.
The book also draws not only on family remembrances but also from source documents (which are referred to in notes accompanying the text)
An interesting book.
For those with an interest in the sites of the police camp and Kennedy's death determined by the recent Genepool productions archeological work, see pages 274-275.
