Synopsis: Scores of bank heists and train robberies which plagued the nation during the roaring twenties, including the biggest train robbery in America's history, were pulled off by the daring Newton brothers. When interviewed at length, the brothers told a tale which is both dramatic and poignant and which, here now in print, grips the reader with its colorful picture of a bygone era. Here are the unembellished but often witty and spellbinding descriptions of their robberies from Texas to Canada, their flamboyant lifestyles when successful and, when unsuccessful, trenchant descriptions of the lawmen who caught them, and the prisons which punished them.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: From the book: "Bonnie and Clyde was just silly kids bound to get themselves killed. We wasn't at all like them. We wasn't thugs. All we wanted was the money, just like doctors, lawyers and other businessmen. Robbing banks and trains was our way of getting it. That was our business." (Willis Newton)
