Summary
"As I lay dying, I see Daddy Walter sitting on the porch reading a Bible sold to him by a man wearing spats." Thus begins the novel of Charles Arthur Floyd, best known to depression-era America as Pretty Boy Floyd. "I was the dreamer, the seeker of all things beyond my reach, the dandy, the dancer, the lover of countless woman, the bank robber, the husband, the father, the son, the brother. I was the most wanted man in America." Rising out of the harvests and oil fields of the Oklahoma dustbowl, Pretty Boy Floyd became the most wanted man in America by the newly formed FBI-and the woman who loved him. And while Bonnie and Clyde were tearing up the country, robbing and shooting their way across the Southwest, Charley was robbing banks from Kansas City to Ohio. The local newspapers were full of stories about guys like John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Machine Gun Kelly, and Al Capone, but none of them had what Pretty Boy had: uncommon good luck, a taste for fancy clothes, fancy cars, and beautiful dames
