Reading Road Trip 2020Current location ArkansasThere are readers who have a particular penchant for stories set in Paris after the French Revolution and there are readers who don t ever want to leave London just following WWII but for me my sweet spot has always been set in America right at the end of the Civil WarIt was a tender and tentative time here in the US We had just ripped our country asunder finally abolished slavery and assassinated the noblest leader this nation has ever known We then experienced a uiet poverty a great disorientation and an abundant wound licking as all people everywhere do following a war So much less was known then about trauma and healing and so given what we know about the great American spirit and concepts like manifest destiny so much of our suffering and our healing continued to play out by pressing on into the Big Sky country of the American West It was a big setting for a diminished people Onto this small stage have stepped several memorable characters but I met a new one this week Mattie Ross the oldest child of Frank Ross Frank Ross was the gentlest most honorable man who ever lived He had a common school education He was a Cumberland Presbyterian and a Mason He was hurt in the terrible fight at Chickamauga up in the state of Tennessee and came near to dying on the way home from want of proper careFrank Ross didn t die in the war and his wife and children were able to celebrate the return of their beloved father and husband only to have him killed promptly by a man named Tom Chaney a drifter whom the kindhearted Frank Ross had taken in as a ranch hand Tom Chaney rode his gray horse that was better suited to a middlebuster than carrying a rider He had no hand gun but he carried his rifle slung across his back on a piece of cotton plow line There is trash for youWhen Tom Chaney kills beloved Frank Ross in front of several eyewitnesses and then flees from the law Mattie Ross is discouraged by the underwhelmed and understaffed local authorities She decides to take matters into her own handsWhat follows is the most fascinating story of a stoic young woman and her determination to see her father s killer apprehended And in doing so she becomes sandwiched in between an erratic US Marshal known as Rooster and a dandy of a Texas rancher known as LaBoeuf two men she has negotiated with to satisfy her desire for justiceMattie Ross is a slip of a girl a young woman who at 14 years old would be likely given the time period to be focused on romance than revengeHardlyMattie does the opposite of most young women at every turn and Charles Portis was a GENIUS for creating her I am not kidding when I tell you that this read had garnered five stars from me from its very first paragraphI m not exaggerating when I tell you that I will go on now to read everything Charles Portis has ever writtenThe title of this story True Grit comes from this line that Mattie speaks to Rooster They tell me you are a man with true grit Turns out Mattie possesses just as much grit as either of the menDamn A new favorite

Wow what a great story Mattie Ross is just 14 years old when she hooks up with Rooster Cogburn the meanest US Marshal to avenge her father killed by an outlaw who took advantage of his good nature Mattie endures bad weather illness grueling hours on horseback runs into outlaws and fights off rattlesnakes She s tough talking honest loyal fearless and I enjoyed every moment with her I also loved the realistic historical details and well drawn secondary characters The gruff and unkempt Rooster Cogburn was a perfect match for the stubborn and willful teenager Mattie s thoughts and exchanges with Rooster were hilarious Nature tells us to rest after meals and people who are too busy to heed that inner voice are often dead at the age of fifty years I had hated these ponies for the part they played in my father s death but now I realized the notion was fanciful that it was wrong to charge blame to these pretty beasts who knew neither good nor evil but only innocence I say that of these ponies I have known some horses and a good many pigs who I believe harbored evil intent in their hearts I will go further and say all cats are wicked though often useful Who has not seen Satan in their sly faces The story is told by Mattie 50 years later She is wealthy unmarried churchgoing and as spirited as she was when she was a teen Though I ve never been a fan of John Wayne films I really enjoyed this classic The remake directed by the Coen brothers and starring Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn is also well worth watching
