KIRKUS REVIEW

Jesse James has become a legendary figure, though he was only 35 when he was betrayed. The author grew up in that part of Missouri from which the James' boys came, and this is an authentic biography, set against the bloody struggle between Kansas and Missouri, the Civil War- and the war's aftermath when the James and the Youngers launched their careers as bank and train robbers. A forever fascinating figure and story, this has special appeal for boys.
