Lawson, W. (n.d.). Jesse James, The Outlaw. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. In the Robber?s Nest Bang! Ping; A bullet whistled by my left ear. Bang! Ping! Thud! Another whistled by my right ear, clipping a lock of hair, and burying itself in the stalk of the heavy blacksnake whip that I was flourishing aloft at the time. ?Curse you! Won?t you stop now?? shouted a voice behind me, to which I had thus far given no heed. ?War, yes, stranger,? I drawled, reining up, and wheeling my horse imperturbably, ?I reckon I will this time, since you insist on it so emphatically.? Three horsemen approached me. They were rather suspicious than angry, and they had just ridden out of the gate of a lonely farmhouse that I had jogged leisurely but observantly by a few minutes before.
