No current Talk conversations about this book.

Coffee table size book containing photos of John Wayne's life and career and released by the John Wayne estate. The book is well done with many never before seen photos although I wonder why, after childhood, there were never any photos of Wayne with his brother. Additionally, there is an error in the caption on page 198-199 in the photo from The Sons of Katie Elder as the names for Michael Anderson Jr. and Earl Holliman are mismatched as Holliman is pictured on the far right. There are tribute articles from Maureen O'Hara, Ronald Reagan, and Ron Howard, as well as a brief biographical introduction by Patricia Bosworth and a forward by Martin Scorsese. A must for any fan of the Duke! ( )
