Bonnie and Clyde Research Collection
"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."
The letters describe Central and East Texas -- the land, weather, transportation, business. They discuss philosophy of love and marriage. Places mentioned include Auburn and Crawford, Alabama; and Henderson, Waxahachie, Dallas, Larissa, and Jamestown, Texas.
