Synopsis

Will Sasse is sick of his pa's slow, careful ways. Pa says only sturdy workhorses are worth raising out in farm country. Will wants to raise beautiful pleasure horses like his mare, Star. So what if it's a risk? Will wishes Pa was more like Jesse, a daring new friend. When Will is caught in a bloody shootout and a fatally botched bank robbery, he realizes that his friend is really the outlaw Jesse James. The James Gang is escaping—and they're taking Star with them. Will joins a posse in pursuit of the outlaws. As the posse closes in, Will realizes that he must make a choice—what kind of life does he really want?
