Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Born in 1956 to John Wayne and his third wife, Pilar, the author witnessed the passing of her father from movie star to American icon. Not surprisingly, he was a stern father--harder on his sons than his little girl. Unlike Christina Crawford's book about her mother, Joan, this is no Duke Dearest; Wayne comes off as a fully rounded person, ultimately held in a sympathetic light. There's little here that hasn't already been suggested in many Wayne bios, although the author does contest the claims made by her father's last personal secretary, Pat Stacy, that the two were open lovers.-- Thomas Wie ner, formerly with ``American Film,'' Washington, D.C.

    good reading, poorly written

    Aissa Wayne tells the story of a man that seemed sureal to her. This great man did not seem fallable. Yet later on she explains that he was just a man and she only thought of him as 'daddy.' Being an avid Wayne fan I enjoyed this book immensely, however, the writing left something to be desired.
