Ned Kelly was a bushranger, and Australian Outlaw who was hanged in 1880 after the failed ambush of a train. But he was a man with imagination... when he was captured he was wearing armor which stopped most of the bullets aimed at him. He sent a political manifesto to express his aims to the Australian government, a manifesto dangerous enough to be suppressed at the time. And he was in an Australia where widespread dissatisfaction with the order of things was rampant. What if things had worked out differently?

An American scientist is asked to apply a technique he has invented for probing "ancestrial consciousness" to a sci-fi writer (Grimes) whose ancestor was at the ill-fated train ambush, so that he can write an article on ned Kelly for an Australian magazine Ned Kelly is famous in Australia in the same way the Jesse James is in the United States. But when he goes back in time and is seeing things through the eyes of his Great-Great Grandfather it turns out that he can influence him slightly, enough to make sure that a schoolmaster does not warn the train in time to prevent the ambush. When Grimes returns the present he knows is changed. Kelly's descendents have become "hereditary presidents" and Australia is in the throes of a political and military crisis. And he must continue to go back in time for the sake of the latest Ned Kelly, to write a true history of the way Austrlia became a "free republic," with the help of his ancestor and Ned Kelly the First.

Well-written and easy to follow, even if you aren't that familiar with Australian history. Definitely worth getting if you can find it.

Kelly Country, (A.) Bertram Chandler
This book fits into a genre that would nowadays be called Alternate Earth, specifically Steampunk.
It shifts between 19th century and modern times.
In the 19th Century Ned Kelly (and friends) lead a revolution against corrupt colonial government, in order to establish a republic. They use various technologies available at the time (but not all widely used), including a precursor to airships, rail and gatling guns. A number of other historical figures, events and technologies affect the story.
The novel shifts to a future where "The Kelly" is a hereditary dictator... (this isn't a spoiler since the book gave that information away on the back cover, and the story - briefly - begins there).
I enjoyed this book quite a lot; well worth a read if you can get hold of it!

I've always been a fan of Chandler's Rim Worlds stories starring John Grimes so buying this book was a natural, but in this case, the book isn't about THAT John Grimes. This book is about a John Grimes who is a science fiction writer in the 1970's who gets caught up in a time travel scheme that transports him back to the days of Ned Kelly, the bushranger and outlaw. His actions result in an alternate universe that isn't as pleasant as the one where he started. It's a good blend of pseudo history, political history, and science fiction, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I bought this because it's promoted as a "John Grimes" novel. Unfortunately, it's only somewhat connected to that character. Despite that, I enjoyed the book. I had heard of the name Ned Kelly, but didn't know where from. A interesting twist on the time travel concept.

I imagine the book would be more interesting if I were Austrilian, but as time travel story it's just okay. There isn't alot of drama. You're really worried about the timeline. The tension doesn't really build until the very end of the book.
