Hardback. Here is a life that has truly been lived. 'Hacksaw' is the autobiography of Ed "Hacksaw" Jones, a former jewel thief-turned-jailhouse folk hero who has escaped from chain gangs, jails and prisons 14 times in 20-yrs., being returned behind bars only long enough to plot his next escape, usually seizing the opportunities unintentionally presented by the very people imprisoning him. "Hacksaw", as he was nicknamed by the FBI, became known as America's foremost prison-escape artist, and is the only person to make the FBI's "ten most wanted" list without a record of physical violence. His story includes the scams, break-ins, run-ins with the FBI and women and the hair-raising prison breaks that have kept journalists and television crews tracking his every move. Illus. 357pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. F. in Nr. F. dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
