The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
By Ron Hansen
320 pages
ISBN 0060976993
I loved this book.
It shows the fall-out of war, the continued price we pay when we go to war, the anger of the dispossessed, the generational pain that is handed down. In this case the war is the USA Civil War. (Jesse James was a soldier on the side of the South, along with Cole Younger and his brothers, and many other men whose farms were taken from their families after the war.)
But it could be any war in any century.

"Hansen re-creates the real West with his imaginative telling of the life of the most famous outlaw of them all, Jesse James, and of his death at the hands of the upstart Robert Ford. James, a charismatic, superstitious, and moody man, holds sway over a ragged gang who fear his temper and quick shooting. Robert Ford, a young gang member torn between worshipping Jesse and taking his place, guns him down in cold blood and lives out his days tormented by the killing."
