Review

"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."

This is far from being similar to other books on John Wayne that I've read.This contains lots of artefacts and gets closer to the man himself ,what he was thinking and how he felt, why he wore the clothes he did and how he created the John Wayne image. All this is done with lavish full colour pictures and written by his family .It also contains excerpts from John Wayne himself via his unfinished memoirs. Basically it brings John Wayne alive .If you love The Duke you've got to get this and at Amazon price it's also great value for money.

This was a present for my husband who has been a John Wayne fan for many years. When I saw this book I knew it would be just right for him and I wasn't wrong. There is so much information in there about "The Duke" that we didn't already know and you can just keep delving into it. It has given my husband hours of pleasure and will continue to do so. A excellent choice.
