Mattie Ross, a fourteen-year-old girl from Dardanelle,
Arkansas, sets out to avenge her father, who was shot to death by a no-good
outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed “Rooster” Cogburn, the meanest US marshal in
the land, to ride along with her. In True Grit, we have a true
American classic, as young Mattie—as vital as she is innocent—outdickers and
outmaneuvers the hard-bitten men of the trail in a legend that will last
through the ages.
Set in a period in history when the law was much less
well-established than it is now, True
Grit takes its place alongside books like To Kill a Mockingbird and
the novels of Mark Twain. Download and start listening now!
