Just received this book today and have decided to send a copy as a Father's Day gift. Great stories and insight of an American icon. This is a must have for any Duke fan.

I purchased this wonderful book from Amazon for my beloved husband, a great fan of John Wayne. He could not put it down. Loves the book. The best Father's Day gift I ever gave him I think. John Wayne was a true American patriot.(maybe in spite of being a Hollywood actor)And the book is well written,filled with information and a good read, says my sweetie.

This has to be the best book ever that had come out about John Wayne. The family has done their father proud with this book. Along with the first one they had published, the two books together will be cherished by John Wayne fans for years to come. With all the added copies of letters from Duke's fellow actors and actresses, letters from Presidents and other important people in Duke's life, plus all the other little copies of documents from the life of John Wayne make this book something that can be passed on to future generations of fans. And it's so much better put together then that book by Roberts/Welky called Treasures. Outstanding job to Ethan and his staff at John Wayne Enterprises.

I couple of very worthwhile John Wayne books these past few months. And this would be one. Some great insight into the man and his life. You come away with the idea he's someone you would have actually liked to have known, beyond his screen persona. The one thing that I didn't care for in this volume was the scrapbook approach to attaching things to certain pages. I would have been happier with just images of what they wanted to share with me, not envelopes of things to open (correspondence) or the odd thing attached to the page (drivers license reproduction and the like) that has to be manipulated to actually read what's on the page. But a good effort none the less. Giving it 5 stars for content but downgrading by one for presentation (the aforementioned scrapbook sort of presentation - which is not predominate, but enough to be irritating, to my mind) which I find a bit odd and distracting.

We purchased this book for a Father's Day gift..much better than a shirt or tie, those traditional gifts because you can't think of anything else! The book is full of stories, anecdotes and copies of some of his personal papers. One item is a marriage certificate..using his given name. If you don't know what his name is, I guess you'll have to buy the book!
Of course you can "google" it, but that's not as fulfilling as seeing the many letters, etc. that are contained in the book,including the personal stories. This is a great gift for anyone who is a John Wayne fan.
