Bonnie and Clyde: The Making of a Legend Hardcover – Illustrated, August 14, 2018
Enhance your purchase
Bonnie and Clyde: we've been on a first name basis with them for almost a hundred years. Immortalized in movies, songs, and pop culture references, they are remembered mostly for their storied romance and tragic deaths. But what was life really like for Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker in the early 1930s? How did two dirt-poor teens from west Texas morph from vicious outlaws to legendary couple? And why?
Award-winning author Karen Blumenthal devoted months to tracing the footsteps of Bonnie and Clyde, unearthing new information and debunking many persistent myths. The result is an impeccably researched, breathtaking nonfiction tale of love, car chases, kidnappings, and murder set against the backdrop of the Great Depression.

I have read a few of the books on the them and this one is shorter than most and far more breezier of their exploits.
It would not be easy to write a new book on them as so much has been written already so one is rehashing the past.
The book adds very little to the mythos although the sections on the people killed is a nice tough.
The book is a nice addition to fan libraries but they need to read more.
