Weekend Reading: True Grit (Charles Portis)

3 sentences or less about fascinating books that beg to be read in less than 3 days.*

True Grit final coverIn 1880s Arkansas, 14 year-old Mattie Ross recruits Rooster Cogburn, a U.S. Marshal of dubious character, to help her track down her father’s killer.  While this is partially a good old-fashioned Western, it as much character study as action tale.  The relationship between Rooster and Mattie – two people drastically different in both age and background – makes for an excellent story in itself.

*Individual reading times may vary due to factors such as fatigue, the presence of children, or beautiful WNC weather. The LRC is not responsible for books not finished within the advertised 3 days. We do, however,  guarantee that our library staff finds each featured title compelling enough that it may cause readers to lose sleep or skip favorite TV shows in order to find out what happens next.
