Illustrated by Juan Estaban Rodríguez
Introduced by Donna Tartt
A whiskey-swilling bounty hunter and a fearless teenage girl are unlikely allies in this electrifying all-American adventure introduced by Donna Tartt.
They tell me you are a man with true grit
Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross wants to avenge her murdered father, but she can’t pull in the fugitive killer on her own, so she asks around town for the meanest gun for hire. A one-eyed US Marshall with a taste for whiskey and a trigger-happy approach to law enforcement, Rooster Cogburn, is happy to take her money. But there’s a catch: there’s an outstanding warrant on the killer, and debonair Texas Ranger LaBoeuf is hell-bent on claiming it ... so, he’s packing his saddlebags and joining the search party.
