About this product
- DescriptionFrom the best-selling author of Billy the Kid and Route 66, a true-life story of a torious outlaw that magnificently re-creates the vanished, impoverished world of Dust Bowl America. Michael Wallis evokes the hard times of the era as he follows the life of Charles Pretty Boy Floyd from his coming of age, when there were jobs and food, to his descent into a life of petty crime, bootlegging, murder, and prison. Before long he was one of the FBI's original public enemies. After a series of spectacular bank robberies he was slain in an Ohio field in 1934 at the age of thirty. Pretty Boy is social history at its best, portraying, with a sweeping style, the larger story of the hardscrabble farmers whose lives were so intolerably shattered by the Depression.
- Author BiographyMichael Wallis is the best-selling author of Route 66, Billy the Kid, Pretty Boy, and David Crockett. He hosts the PBS series American Roads. He voiced The Sheriff in the animated Pixar feature Cars. He lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
