You’ve read the story of Jesse James,
Of how he lived and died.
If you’re still in need for something to read,
Here’s the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
Bonnie Harper, from “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde”
“If the world loves lovers, the world of the Depression years loved bank robbers. So Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow became and remained the stuff of folklore. . . . This careful account provides accuracy just as Milner’s subjects provide action.”Publishers Weekly
“A well-researched, briskly written account of the infamous outlaw couple.” Houston Chronicle
“The Lives and Times of Bonnie & Clyde qualifies as the ‘definitive’ coverage of the relatively brief Barrow-Parker crime spree. The author’s voluminous use of notes and references indeed adds an aura of authority on the many situations and issues covered, some still quite controversial.”Roger Conger, past president of the Texas State Historical Association
“A valuable study, providing a fascinating overview of the notorious Lone Star criminals.”Southwestern Historical Quarterly
"Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker burst upon the American Southwest in the Great Depression year of 1932. At the time of Clyde’s first involvement in a murder, people paid little attention to the event. He was just another violent hoodlum in a nation with a growing list of brutal criminals, which included Al Capone, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and the Barker gang. Not until Bonnie and Clyde joined forces did the public become intrigued. The phrase ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ took on an electrifying and exotic meaning that has abated little in the past sixty years."E. R. Milner, from the Prologue
