Life & Death of Pretty Boy Floyd
Jeffery S. King (au). Jeffery King’s entertaining biography of the Public Enemy Number One of 1934 is a piece of historical detective work that is scholarly as well as gripping. He not only relates Floyd’s life & career from youth to death from lawmen’s bullets, but chronicles the many crimes in which he took part or masterminded. King brings us back to the days of John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, & Ma Barker & her boys. Amidst these robbin’ hoods, Floyd was seen as Robin Hood . . . . Like a populist politician, he convinced others & perhaps himself that he was, after all, only robbing the big money guys & that he loved the poor. King’s story, based mainly on FBI files & contemporary newspaper accounts, moves along like a well-maintained getaway car. Black & white photos.
