Bonnie and Clyde have become a part of American folklore, yet their true story--their family story--has remained elusive . . . until now.

Dissatisfied with all previous examinations of her older brother, Marie Barrow Scoma wanted to set the record straight by utilizing previously unpublished photographs and her mother's diary, which had never been seen by anyone outside the family.

Easy read unfortunately lots of issues in terms of accuracy of facts. Lots of blaming others for why certain people were murdered by the gang. Go Down Together by Jeff Guinn is a better book if you want the real story of Bonnie and Clyde, warts and all.
