The Complete and Authentic Life of Jesse James
The Complete and Authentic Life of Jesse James Author:Carl W. Breihan What kind of man was Jesse Woodson James? — He was a blue-eyed, husky Missourian who could shoot down a bank teller in cold blood. He could and did teach a hymn-singing class. He stole hundreds of thousands of dollars at gunpoint. He was gentle to his wife. He killed scores of men during the war and after. He played Santa Claus -- red suit, ... more »whiskers and all -- to his children. In his time he was the most wanted man in America.
More than half a century has passed since Robert Ford (the dirty little coward!) shot Jesse James in the back in Jesse's own parlor. Since that time countless myths have gathered around the scourge of the mid-western plains, who for years was able to evade not only the hundreds of detectives who were on his trail, but also the scores of men attracted by the tremendous price on his head -- $10,000 dead or alive!
In this definitive work, Carl W. Breihan writes the authentic objective biography of Jesse James. In it he has detailed in exciting dramatic fashion every known fact about America's most fabulous bandit -- and he has woven into his narrative the exploits of the men who accompanied and helped Jesse -- his older brother Frank, the four Younger brothers, Bob, Cole, Jim and John -- and the 22 other desperados who rode with them.
In this book you will find not only the most thorough and accurate biography of Jesse James, but also an authoritative picture story which in fifty original photographs and documents brings to thrilling life the times in which Jesse James lived -- and died.
Homer Croy, probably the world's foremost authority on Jesse Jamesiana, writes a fascinating foreword for this definitive work.« less
