I purchased this for my husband who had started watching it on the History Channel. He is very intrigued with Jesse James, I recently found out we are distant cousins as well, which made this more interesting to me as well.

Jesse James' Hidden Treasure is an interesting television special, but with underwhelming content and technical presentations, it's probably better to leave it on television with most of the other dramatic history pieces the History Channel may be pimping these days.

The whole idea is ridiculous to start with. If Jesse James had a treasure hidden somewhere, then why did he on his final days, in need of money, plan a bank robbery, and not just simply go and get the treasure?

This program is OK for a bit of entertainment but it is no way in sync with actual history. What you have are two men who apparently have created a fantasy that includes a historic outlaw, Jesse James. Pastore claims he believes he has a "PhD in Jesse James" yet he gives no actual documentation for his outlandish theories and believes the James gang stole over 1 million dollars when actual historians put the number at around 250,000. He recognizes "Jesse's hand" in rock carvings. However he can't give one piece of actual fact that Jesse spent time carving wherever he went. The other actor in this Old West fantasy is Ganis. He self published two books, that is no actual publisher would waste their time on him, and claims to know the true James gang. However his claims are also unsupported and lack documented. Throughout his books he makes claims that are based on "legends" and documents that he suspiciously doesn't name. He claims there was a North Carolina band of the James Gang. Really? These men had chapters in other states like fraternities in colleges? The History Chanel has decided to sidestep actual history and go for something that is filled with supposition and fantasy. This is as ludicrous as the two hours they dedicated to the Holy Grail being in America when there's no actual documentation of an actual relic. If you watch this do so for entertainment only. If you find yourself actually believing what you hear question your sanity.

Just had to have it to take in the RV. Its a show I can watch over and over and never get tired of the information contained within.
