Young Duke: The Early Life of John Wayne by Chris Enss, Howard Kazanjian

Marion Morrison, born in Winterset, Iowa, also known as John Wayne, defined the myth of the Old West from the silver screen for five decades. This new book examines his early life and his first roles in Hollywood, uncovering the true stories behind the screen legend's highly publicized and sometimes controversial public life.

The Young Duke, undertaken with the assistance of the Wayne family, offers an unflinching look at this icon's early years. This book includes unpublished family photographs and many personal reminisences.
