    Highly Recommended

    If you love history and Jesse James, this is the book for you. I loved this book. It is captivating and I couldn't put it down. I felt I knew Jesse and why he did the things he did after reading this book. You really get a feel for that period in Civil War history and how it related to the life of Jesse James. Definitely recommend reading.

    Excellent read

    I had trouble at first because this is written from the perspective of an outlaw and murderer. I don't like to think in terms of justifying killing. I liked the history of the times however and started to change what I thought of it as I read. I still haven't decided what I think of Jesse James but I liked the book. He was an unusual man living in violent times I quess I can agree to that much.

    Good....but

    After watching a movie about Jesse James, I decided to find out the "real" story. The book was very interesting and informative, especially about the Civil War and the years following, but I have to question some of the details of the account. How would the author know details of the more personal kind? (i.e., where did he get the information about Jesse and Zee's first sexual encounter? Their thoughts and feelings afterward?) So while I enjoyed the book, it felt like part truth and part novel.
