Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross is determined to avenge her father's murder, and she convinces U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn to help her.

This is the book that came before the movie(s). Mattie's quite a gal.

Claimed today at TOC lunch. Will read and pass along.

Excellent tale of a child looking to adults to be upstanding and do the right thing becoming the example she was expecting of others.

Back to TOC, 12/5/11.

Picked this back up again at our TOC lunch at Ryan's today. It will probably go into one of the bookboxes headed my way.

I haven't seen the movie, but I know there was at least one, so this book will be going out in GoryDetails's Based on the Book box once I have an address for the next person.

Grabbed this from the "Based on the book" book box. I believe I'm one of the few that has never seen this movie, old version or new. I tend to have a hard time reading a book once I've seen the movie, so I'm glad that I will be able to enjoy this without any preconceived notions of what the characters should be like. Thanks for adding this one!

I really enjoyed this book and all the characters, good and bad. They were all written with a bit of spunk and I smiled to myself while reading on more than one occassion. I might look into reading more from this author, and now that I've read the book I plan on watching the movie!
