The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Date: August 2007
Duration: 6 hours 14 minutes
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.
