About this Item

378 pages. Dimensions: 7.7in. x 5.0in. x 0.9in.The new Quid Pro edition of this classic and fun read is a Digitally Remastered Booka correct reproduction of the classic 1914 memoirs, unlike any new version of this book available today (as easily seen by Previewing other publishers facsimile versions). This process removes underlines, stray marks, smudges and printer errors typically found in such reprints, and completes missing letters and words. It provides a cleaner, complete, and more professional presentationa pleasant reading experience with no distracting artifacts. This kind of popular prose and social observation deserves such a quality remastering. The New York Times, April 5, 1914: HOW I ROBBED TRAINS: BY A CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR; Al Jennings, Reformed Outlaw and Ex-Convict, Who Expects to be Chief Executive of Oklahoma, Tells the Story of His Exploits as Head of The Jennings Gang. AL JENNINGS has written his autobiography. Or, to be exact, he has dictated it to a stenographer, and Will Irwin has edited it. So Mr. Irwin says, by way of preface and explanation; and he adds (Irwin does) that the stenographer alternately chuckled and sobbed as she made her hen-tracks. Alphonso J. Jennings (18631961) was a prosecuting attorney in Oklahoma Territory whoafter his familys law practice was decimated by a shootout with a rival attorneybecame an outlaw and train robber. After capture and serving time in Ohio and Leavenworth (sharing prison time, in fact, with O. Henry), Jennings returned to law practice, turned to politics, became a celebrity with the publication of these memoirs, and even became a silent film actor. With Will Irwin, Jennings produced a magazine series on his wild exploits, hard time in prison, and rehabilitationspinning an unlikely arc of a life, to be surewhich later became the very entertaining and successful book BEATING BACK.
