Watson, William P. Union, Justice and Bonnie& Clyde: A Louisiana Legacy! Everett Companies, 1989. 148 pp., ill. 1st ptg., fine in dj. Presents in transcript form a fictitious trial of the Barrow Gang, in which the reader is asked to accept jury duty. The author presumably feared a libel suit, inasmuch as snatches of dialogue naming the sheriff have been overlaid with patches giving him a fictitious name, and a nervous disclaimer is   mounted on the flyleaf. Of interest are photos of documents relating to the coroner's jury, nowhere else, to our knowledge, published. 1802 $35.00
