About the Book

The True Story of this KING of all-time Historical Outlaws is guaranteed to change the history books before the 21st Century has begun. On the Monday morning of April 3, 1882 the World renowned notorious Outlaw was shot at the age of 35 years old and instantly killed by The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, ©2007. Or was he? Did he live another 70 years, until 1951 to hold his infant Great Grandson, Robert C. James, in his arms at age 104? What did Jesse do when he heard reports of his own death? Who was killed in his place? Was he a member of a Secret Society? Where is his gold? Where did he go, and what did he do? Where was he buried? Does it really matter that other people may want to know this information? The Second Legend involves adultery, inbreeding, a deathbed confession and a sojourn around the North and South American Continents of the World. The tale focuses on an outlaw who had been a “Robin Hood” type who spread his money around, especially to women in distress, in exchange for special favors, and then leaving babies in his dust. His legend certainly lives.

The Film was released in 1982. The real story was that he was Honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in 1969, Vietnam era as an Aviation Personnelman, in San Diego, California.

Robert wrote the movie screenplay, The Second Legend Of Jesse Woodson James, ©1993 based on stories that were told to him by his Grand Father. He plans to rewrite the screenplay again for the Hollywood market. This is where the history courses at the university are important to him. He is a hands-on learner and also seeks the approval of others.
