Description

William A. Settle, Jr. has, for a number of years, trailed the James brothers through the columns of old newspapers and the records of county courts. In his search for the facts concerning these men--heroes to some, criminals to others--he has critically examined the contemporary accounts of their activities and has interviewed men and women who could give eyewitness or close hearsay evidence of them. Employing the techniques of scholarly research, Professor Settle has winnowed the fact from the fiction to produce this study of these most notorious American bandits.
