Description

Charles Portis has long been acclaimed as one of America's foremost comic writers.
True Grit is his most famous novel--first published in 1968, and the basis for the movie of the same name starring John Wayne. It tells the story of Mattie Ross, who is just fourteen years of age when a coward going by the name of Tom Chaney shoots her father down in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and robs him of his life, his horse, and $150 in cash money. Mattie leaves home to avenge her father's blood. With the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn, the meanest available U.S. Marshal, by her side, Mattie pursues the homicide into Indian Territory.

True Grit is eccentric, cool, straight, and unflinching, like Mattie herself. From a writer of true cult status, this is an American classic through and through. This new edition, with a smart new package and an afterword by acclaimed author Donna Tartt, will bring this masterpiece to an even broader audience.

Books of my youth

This wonderful novel was released in my infancy. After seeing the John Wayne movie as a child I was eager to read the book. I was eleven or twelve the first time I read the book. I have revisited the story many times through the years and encourage others to read it. This is a modern classic and needs to be passed to the younger generation. ( though they would rather be snake bit than read a book).
