Publisher's Summary

It was the most famous bank robbery of all time, involving the legendary James-Younger gang's final shocking holdup - the infamous Northfield Raid - and the thrilling two-week chase that followed. Mark Lee Gardner, author of the critically acclaimed To Hell on a Fast Horse, takes us inside Northfield's First National Bank and outside to the streets as Jesse James and his band of outlaws square off against the heroic citizens who risked their lives to defeat America's most daring criminals. With vivid detail and novelistic verve, Gardner follows the James brothers as they elude both the authorities and the furious citizen posses hell-bent on capturing them in one of the largest manhunts in the history of the United States. He reveals the serendipitous endings of the Younger brothers - Cole, Jim, and Bob - and explores the James brothers' fates after the dust settled, solving mysteries about the raid that have been hotly debated for more than 130 years.

A galloping true tale of frontier justice featuring audacious outlaws and intrepid heroes, Shot All to Hell is a riveting slice of Wild West history that continues to fascinate today.

    Story
    "The old west outlaw comes alive."

    I really, really enjoyed this book. It tells the story of some of our most famous western outlaws and like those outlaws, few words were water. A really fun and informative book. Highly recommended. The narrator was great and you won't be disappointed.

    Story
    "Great Story, Bad Faribault"
    Would you listen to Shot All to Hell again? Why?

    I would definitely listen again. It was a very interesting history, easy to listen to, exciting and informative.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My only complaint is that the performer has not been to Minnesota. At one point he mispronounces Wabasha (though he gets it right for the rest of the book) and pronounces Faribault incorrectly throughout. As a native of southern Minnesota, it was a little frustrating. Otherwise I really enjoyed the reading, including the accents.

    Story
    "filled with details and a first rate narrator"

    Close up look at Jesse James and his gang, centered on the Northfield Raid. Lots of good detail about the robbery itself and the subsequent posse chase. Johnny Heller was a terrific narrator, sounding like he just came out of the 1850s.
