It was the most famous bank robbery of all
time, involving the legendary James-Younger gang’s final shocking holdup, the
infamous Northfield Raid, and the thrilling two-week chase that followed. Mark
Lee Gardner, author of the critically acclaimed To Hell on a Fast Horse,
takes us inside Northfield’s First National Bank and outside to the streets as
Jesse James and his band of outlaws square off against the heroic citizens who
risked their lives to defeat America’s most daring criminals. With vivid detail
and novelistic verve, Gardner follows the James brothers as they elude both the
authorities and the furious citizen posses hell-bent on capturing them in one
of the largest manhunts in the history of the United States. He reveals the
serendipitous endings of the Younger brothers, Cole, Jim, and Bob, and explores
the James brothers’ fates after the dust settled, solving mysteries about the
raid that have been hotly debated for more than a hundred years.
A galloping true tale of frontier justice
featuring audacious outlaws and intrepid heroes, Shot All to Hell is a riveting slice of Wild West
history that continues to fascinate today.
