John Wayne: American


Author: Randy Roberts

738 pages, Softcover. 1995-University of Nebraska Press

John Wayne – the man, the legend, the American cowboy. His career in Hollywood spanned 50 years, including silents, serials, B movies and modern epics.

“Prodigiously researched life of Wayne – the best yet to appear.” – Washington Post


“With John Wayne: American we finally have the truth behind the legend.” – Philadelphia Inquirer.


John Wayne: American is rich in Hollywood lore, history, and personalities. It is also a commentary on symbol and myth as cultural staple in film.” – Washington Times


During a long movie career, John Wayne defined the role of the cowboy and soldier, the gruff man of decency, the hero who prevailed when the chips were down. But who was he, really? Here is the first substantive, serious view of a contradictory private and public figure.


Written by Randy Roberts, professor of history at Purdue University; and James S. Olson, professor of history at Sam Houston State University.
