Staff Reviews


This lost classic has been revitalized by the recently released Coen brothers' movie. The dialogue and pace of author Charles Portis have been faithfully rendered in the film. Readers of all ages and backgrounds will find something compelling in 14 year-old Mattie Ross's quest to hunt down her father's killer. This is a great book for vacation travel as it can truly be read and enjoyed by everyone in the family.
