Much as moviegoers may have felt that they knew John Wayne, offscreen he was a different man, with family and friends calling him "Duke," "Everlovin,'" and "Dad." Here his family has opened their private archives to share Wayne's personal letters, telegrams, cards, and memos. In these exchanges with people from every station of life and all corners of the globe, Wayne's tough yet sincere nature shows through—whether he's writing to fans or family, platoons or presidents, he's always candid, colorful, and quick with a joke. Rare photographs appear throughout, and Duke's son Ethan Wayne provides the introduction.
