The first definitive biography of the notorious Wild West desperado; an illustrated, authentic reproduction of the rare 1882 edition. There are few outlaws who were as iconic in the ruthless American West as Jesse James. A guerilla during the Civil War, he partnered with his brother, Frank, on a criminal career that lasted more than a decade, corralling numerous gangs into bank hold-ups, stagecoach hijackings, and train raids. Detailing every one of the robberies and acts of violence James and his gang perpetrated, this unique biography, written just seven weeks after his assassination, was a sensation upon its initial publication. Authorized by James's wife as well as his mother, it's the first and only account that puts you in the front row of the life and crimes of this legendary outlaw. Jesse James is an essential piece of Western literature—both an important historical document of the era, and one hell of a wild story.
