Description
Acclaimed as "one of the most inventively comic writers of western fiction" (Michael Cleary), Charles Portis published this, his most famous novel, in 1968, which has since become the basis for both the 1969 movie starring John Wayne and the 2010 film by the Coen brothers, starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon. It tells the story of Mattie Ross, who is just 14 years of age when the coward Tom Chaney shoots her father down in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and robs him of his life, his horse, and $150 in cash money. Mattie leaves home to avenge her father's blood with the meanest U.S. Marshal she can find—the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn—by her side, heading into Indian Territory.

"Like Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn and Thomas Berger's Little Big Man, Charles Portis's True Grit captures the naïve elegance of the American voice."—Jonathan Lethem
