“Paging through this beautiful hardcover is an interactive experience that captures the public and private life of John Wayne in an exciting, intimate, and unprecedented way. The 160-page book is worth careful study with its full-color photographs, memorabilia, reprinted letters, and remarkable anecdotes. Each turn of the page brings a new discovery about the cinematic legend. From Wayne’s childhood to his political ascent, handwritten letters, classic Western stills, as well as interviews with friends and family and excerpts from his unfinished memoir, John Wayne: The Genuine Article truly brings the legend to life."
