Marley Brant

The live and times of outlaw Jesse James.

Confederate guerilla. Bank robber. Cold blooded killer. Husband and father.  Through a portrait painted of a man obsessed with rebellion, loyalty, and an irrepressible need to be known, Jesse James emerges as a man who adamantly refused to believe that the War Between the States would ever be over.  From Jesse's complicated family roots, his explosive career during the Civil War and his reputation as the country's most notorious bandit, Jesse James allows the reader more than just a glimpse into the troubled psyche of America’s foremost outlaw.

Professional Reviews

Confederate guerrilla. Bank robber. Cold-blooded killer. Jesse James was all of these, but still, most of his life remains a mystery. Now Marley Brant, author of the acclaimed biography The Outlaw Youngers, sets the record straight, painting a portrait of a man obsessed with rebellion, loyalty, and an irrepressible need to be known. He loved as intensely as he hated. And in his eyes, the war between the states would never be over. From his obscure childhood to his explosive career during the Civil War to his earning the reputation as the country's most notorious bandit, Jesse James brings you the facts and dispels the fiction. Once and for all, we can finally know the man and the myth. * Includes rare photos from the James family archives * There are many myths and misconceptions about Jesse James-this book sets the record straight* The author's first book, The Outlaw Youngers, drew rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and others.
