Jesse James: My Father
Around 2003, I visited the house where Jesse James was murdered by Robert Ford. It was in St. Joseph, MO, and overall, I gotta say: what a town! It has so much character and really hearkens back to the West of Old. Anyway, being in St. Joseph and then later watching the movie with Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck, we decided to pick up a few Jesse James items. This is one of them. More to come in future posts.
When I saw that the book's cover calls his crimes "adventures," it reminded me of that Brady Bunch episode where Bobby thinks he's a hero, but by the end of the episode, he realizes that James murdered people. What a very special episode that was! LOL.
