While Angels Dance : The Life And Times Of Jeston Nash
by Laura Ashton and Ralph Cotton




Overview -
This large handsome 5" X 8" Trade Paper Collector's Edition makes the perfect addition to the western reader's book shelf. Author Ralph Cotton grew up listening to stories of the James-Younger gang, and as the years passed his fascination led him to seek the truth behind the legends. Now, in this brilliant blend of history and imagination, he offers up a fresh and gritty look at the gang through the eyes of Jeston Nash. Jeston Nash bears a striking resemblance to his cousin, Jesse Woodson James of Clay County, Missouri. After killing a Yankee soldier in self-defense, Jeston meets his cousins, Jesse and Frank, and joins them to fight in Quantrill's guerilla forces. Later, after the war, he rides with the James-Younger gang as they invent their special brand of bank and train robbery. All the while, Jeston seeks vengeance against Daniel Zanone, of the Free Kansas Militia-the man responsible for the death of his child. In While Angels Dance, the reader will experience the events, places, and people that helped fuel the legends of these men. It is a vivid adventure tale of the outlaw West and an original view of the James-Younger gang.
