Twain & James ... Magnificent!

While the novel doesn't shed any light on the ambiguity surrounding the death of the infamous Jesse James, the tale that Jesse weaves (purportedly to Mark Twain) leaves one feeling sorry if not compassionate for the outlaw, despite his nefarious deeds. Without having read any other biographical accounts of the life of Jesse James, I can only say that Max McCoy crafted a crisp, entertaining read that seemed to be 'the real McCoy.' Kick back & enjoy!

About this book

Wiki

Jesse is a valuable addition not only to the Western fiction collection or the Kansas collection, but also to the heritage of the Kansas library community. Even if you dont read Westerns or have an interest in Jesse James, the seven-page Word of Explanation is a must-read... The remainder of Jesse lives up to the authors usual quality--a fast-paced, highly interesting and accurate fictional work with a twist... Recommended for Western fiction or Kansas collections, and for all Kansas libraries. --Kansas Libraries Journal, September 1999
