Great book detailing the murder of Barrow Gang victim J.N. Bucher.
It contain copies of all the documentation which survived the court house fire in Hillsboro,
State Archives findings, plus info from the family and also some never before seen photographs.

With all due respect to the late author Phillip W. Steele, I look at the sources of information
provided to him, as being inaccurate and therefore the book should have never gone to print.

What a tainted book, full of mis-information! I could go on forever with examples of bogus information and mis-labeled
photographs throughout this book, but will instead give but one example of what's to be found in it. In Chapter Nine,
Page 63, it say's that W.D., Bonnie and Clyde drove to Temple, Texas on December 23 and the next day Clyde shot Doyle
Johnson several times, but missed him. W.D. Jones then fired several more rounds toward Johnson as well. This book's
version is that Johnson was very seriously wounded, but recovered from his wounds, only to be killed a month later in
Dallas. The truth is, that Mr. Johnson was shot in the neck on Christmas Day, and died the very next day, Dec. 26, 1932.

"The Ballad of Clyde and Bonnie" - 1934

The following section on Matthew Henry Kleiner was initiated by Hideout visitor / friend,
Ray Isbell. More research is being made on this subject, which will result in future updates!

Following the May '34 deaths of Bonnie and Clyde, Matthew Henry Kleiner in June of 1934, supposedly concluded
a contract for the publication of a song entitled "The Ballad of Clyde and Bonnie." No copyright for his song on
Clyde and Bonnie could be found, but this one in 1966 - "The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" - words by B. Pittman,
and music by D. Pittman - copyright Blanche Marie Pittman & Don Neil Pittman; Nov. 1965. Then of course, there's
"The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" performed by Georgie Fame in 1967. Composers Mitch Murray & Peter Callander.

J.C. Sullivan
Barrow "Driver"?

J.C. Sullivan was an acquaintence of W.D. Jones and he supposedly drove for Bonnie and Clyde.
He went to prison three times and escaped twice. In 1939 he turned his life over to Christ.
There is a book he put out entitled "from Crime to Christ." which was later changed to
"They couldn't kill Sullivan!" There has been interviews and news articles on Sullivan in the
1970s, about his life with Bonnie and Clyde, but I've never seen anything to prove it true!


I actually enjoy reading this book over and over again!
