Spanning over 100 years of personal history, this book follows the Baran family from their immigration to the US through the present day. In the middle are the escapades of Florence Baran and Bill Gaskell on their cross-country crime spree in 1953-1954. They started in Chicago's Hyde Park where they met, and performed a series of armed robberies that brought them to California and then back across the US to Florida.
The book is a fast read interspersed with pictures and copies of letters and newspaper articles. The author's writing is stream of consciousness styled and resembles a conversation or monologue about the research he did on this subject. The editing is a little uneven, but this is an excellent self-published, freshman effort.
