"Bestselling author Jeff Guinn combines exhaustive research with surprising, newly discovered material to tell the real tale of two kids from a filthy Dallas slum who fell in love and then willingly traded their lives for a brief interlude of excitement and, more important, fame. "Go Down Together" has it all—true romance, rebellion against authority, bullets flying, cars crashing, and, in the end, a dramatic death at the hands of a celebrity lawman."

Scope and Contents of the Materials

Research material collected and used by Jeff Guinn for his book "Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde."
