Rooster : the life and times of the real Rooster Cogburn, the man who inspired True grit
Summary: "Franklin "Rooster" Cogburn was born in 1866 in Fancy Hill, Arkansas, the descendant of pioneers and moonshiners. Six foot three, dark eyed, and a dead shot with a rifle, he was as hard as the rocky mountain ground his family settled. Though he never packed a badge, Rooster meted out his own brand of justice, taking on a posse of U.S. deputy marshals in a blazing showdown of gunfire and blood. A wanted man with a $500 reward on his head, Rooster would ultimately have to defend himself before a hanging judge. Rooster incorporates never-before-seen photos and documents that bring the legend to life for the very first time. History buffs, movie fans, and western aficionados will relish this fascinating portrait of a true American icon" --Amazon.
