Good biography of a larger than life person. Explains his hard work ethic and inner insecurity (one cause was that his mother did not love him at all as a child !) The author had no help with the biography from the older children, but did very well with tons of interviews from Harry Carey, Jr. and many other costars and friends. This book was very worthwhile and even surpassed the earlier biography I'd read, "Shooting Star". He was an icon, even though his politics were quite rigid.

3.5. Nice tribute but not quite what I wanted. Seemed to rely on shock value a little too much.

Interesting look at the life of an American icon. I had known that he had not served in the military but I had not known why. This very linear biography addressed that as well as many other issues.
