The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert FordBook - 1996
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.
