"John Wayne, the Legend and the Man" supplies an appealing look at the larger-than-life iconic movie star who came to symbolize the American character in the minds of many people. This hefty 2012 release chronicles Wayne's life and career in roughly chronological order. It offers up hundreds of black and white and color photographs, movie posters and remembrances from co-stars and friends that present a rare, behind-the-scenes and altogether charming portrait of Wayne, his family and friends, etc. All in all, this book is a well-done and affectionate tribute to a cinematic legend.
