    Mattie Ross, a 14-year-old girl from Dardanelle, Arkansas, sets out to avenge her Daddy who was shot to death by a no-good outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed "Rooster" Cogburn, the meanest U.S. marshal in the land, to ride along with her. In True Grit, we have a true American classic, as young Mattie, as vital as she is innocent, outdickers and outmaneuvers the hard-bitten men of the trail in a legend that will last through the ages.

    Overall

    Donna Tart is outstanding and could not have been better suited to the task, she has a perfect understanding of the characters and brought them to life in vivid detail. The "voice" of the book is from the adult Mattie Ross and Tart's interpretation is pitch perfect.

    As for Portis text, it is a classic and deserves higher praise than I can offer.
