One of my favorite books
by TRC1 on November 17, 2011If you liked the Coen brother's film version of True Grit, you will enjoy reading the book. The dialogue is especially elegant,
as I presume people used to talk in those days. Many of the references in the book are based on real people and places in Arkansas and what is now Oklahoma. There really is a Yell County, and Dardanelle and Fort Smith are real cities. And Judge Parker was a real person. So you get a history lesson along with a fine dramatic story. Mattie Ross is a role model for all of us.
