Even if you're not a big Western fan, you're still sure to enjoy reading this detailed biography of "The Duke" (aka. John Wayne, aka. Marion Robert Morrison).

Looming over everyone at a towering 6'4" - Wayne, whose acting career spanned from 1926-1976, was one of Hollywood's biggest box-office draws for 30 of those years.

When it came to being "The Duke" - The man that you saw on the big-screen was, indeed, the very same man who you met in real life.

Out of the 143 pictures that Wayne appeared in throughout his long career, 83 were Westerns.

This book, written by Michael Munn, also includes numerous pages of photos.

*Note* - In 1976 - John Wayne (72 at the time) died of cancer of the stomach.
