Scribe's Tribute to
Jesse James
Jesse James

Scribe's next favorite outlaw is Jesse James, who rode with his brother, Frank, and many others who came away from the Civil War with a bitter taste in their mouths and no way to make a real living. Although Jesse, like Billy the Kid, was known as a murderer and a no-good thief, Jesse was also known as a sort-of "Robin Hood of the West" for his habit of "taking from the rich and giving to the poor."

Once again, those who lived and experienced the actual events that occurred in Jesse's life are perhaps the best judges of the outlaw whose death has created as much controversy as his life.
