Publisher's Summary

Jesse James was a fabled outlaw, a charismatic, spiritual, larger-than-life bad man whose bloody exploits captured the imagination and admiration of a nation hungry for antiheroes. Robert Ford was a young upstart torn between dedicated worship and murderous jealousy, the "dirty little coward" who coveted Jesse's legend. The powerful, strange, and unforgettable story of their interweaving paths - and twin destinies that would collide in a rain of blood and betrayal - is a story of America in all her rough, conflicted glory and the myths that made her.

©1983 Ron Hansen; (P)2006, 2007 HarperCollins Publishers

What the Critics Say

"Vivid and sustained." (New York Times Book Review)
"Retelling the familiar stories, making them fresh, finding in them an unresolvable mystery and tragedy about fame and ambition in America, this book is a wonderful achievement." (San Francisco Chronicle)

    "Wonderful"

    A terrific performance of one of the best books on the old west. Sam Freed brings the story to life.
