John Wayne: Duke In His Own Words
Haven't started it yet. I had several other books in that same order plus a couple on the back burner.
A great purchase
Unfortunately, haven't had any chance to read it as busy with Income Taxes and custody fight with ex.
However, knowing my cousin, he will be honest and straight with ya. And the other thing.... he practiced what he said.
Great book. Recommend it to all.
