Summary Jesse James is one of the most infamous outlaws in American history. He is remembered for his gunslinging skills, ruthless bank robberies, and frequent train hijackings. A volatile mixture of charisma and cruelty, he ruled his gang with an iron first. Jesse's demise was put in motion when he met Robert Ford, who had been obsessed with the bandit since childhood. Ford joined the Gang, but the reality did not live up to the fantasy. Ultimately, a government conspiracy and a a hefty reward pushed Ford over the edge and committed one of the most treacherous acts in history.
