Publisher's Comments

"The James Gang raid on the bank at Northfield and its aftermath is America's penultimate rip-snorting horseback robbery story. The outlaws were the most daring and most wanted men in the nation. They dressed well, rode fine horses, were sociable and well-mannered. Conflicting reports arose about nearly everything that happened in the raid and to the participants afterwards. A century of writers made the confusion worse. Mr. Koblas doesn't purport to have all the answers. He presents a book based on exhaustive research that is essentially a presentation of all available reports. He adds much information about something virtually unknown: his research on the pros and cons of Bill Stiles being a ninth man at Northfield who escaped to die peacefully in Los Angeles years later. A masterpiece of historical research. The most detailed examination of a James Gang event to date. Should be required reading for every student of Western history." Paul Meredith, Violent Kin Magazine
