Synopsis : For over 100 years, there have always been serious doubts that Bob Ford had killed Jesse James, Though most of our old history books have claimed that he did, there have always been many people who refused to believe it and have said that it was a clever hoax so that Jesse could escape from the law--and that they could prove it. However, there are still those who believe that history has told it right. But since the doubts have never gone away, it has led to some extensive research into the matter that has come up with some surprising results, but also along with more questions, such as: did Jesse live on to be an old man as some have claimed; if Jesse wasn't killed, then who lies buried in his grave; and when the body was exhumed in 1995 for DNA testing, what did it show? And since Bob Ford claimed to have shot Jesse with a .45 caliber handgun, why was a .38 caliber bullet found in the skull? The book also contains some interesting stories of Jesse and his gang, including the big shoot-out during their failed robbery of the bank in Northfield, Minnesota; the many years of being pursued by the Pinkerton's; the gunfights they had; and when they threw a bomb into his mothers home one night that killed Jesse's younger brother and blew off part of his mothers left arm, but failed to capture Jesse and Frank. Additionally, it includes information on Bob Fords secret deal with the Governor; why he only received part of the reward money instead of all of it; how Jesse had tried to pull off a hoax about his dearth before; and who was the old man who appeared in 1948 and said that he was the real Jesse James and had not been killed? All that and much more is covered in this new book.
