JESSE JAMES AND THE CIVIL WAR IN MISSOURI Written by Robert L. Dyer
"The Civil War in Missouri was a time of great confusion, violence, and destruction. Although several major battles were fought in the state between Confederate and Union forces, much of the fighting in Missouri was an ugly form of terrorism carried out by loose bands of Missouri guerrillas, by Kansas "Jayhawkers," or by marauding patrols of Union soldiers. This irregular warfare provided a training ground for people like Jesse and Frank James, who, after the war, used their newly learned skills to form an outlaw band that ultimately became known all over the world.
Jesse James and the Civil War in Missouri discusses the underlying causes of the Civil War as they relate to Missouri and reveals how the war helped create both the legend and the reality of Jesse James and his gang."
THE MANY FACES OF JESSE JAMES
Signed, First Edition, Second Printing By Phillip W. Steele with George Warfel
"A name well known to most Americans, Jesse James was a veteran of the Civil War, a bank robber, and a very romanticized popular hero. In The Many Faces of Jesse James author Phillip W. Steele, with George Warfel, presents a fascinating study of James' life using his many portraits as a frame of reference. Because a picture has long been known to reveal more than a story can, Steele takes each documented photograph of James and examines it closely, showing how the dress, demeanor, and physical well-being of James relate to what scholars believe him to have been doing at the time.
The result of Steele's work is to transform a figure largely legend into a more real man. Also included is a group of "false photos".
