True Grit

Written by Charles Portis

Narrated by Donna Tartt

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars



About this audiobook

Mattie Ross, a fourteen-year-old girl from Dardanelle, Arkansas, sets out to avenge her Daddy who was shot to death by a no-good outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed "Rooster" Cogburn, the meanest U.S. 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.

Editor's Note

Cult classic…

“True Grit” became an American cult classic thanks to its beloved narrator, the 14-year-old Mattie Ross, its dry sense of humor, and two critically acclaimed film adaptations, one starring John Wayne, the other Jeff Bridges. Author Charles Portis died February 17, 2020, at the age of 86.
