Introduction by Roy Blount Jr. -- True Grit -- "An American Girl" by Jacquelyn Mitchard -- "Still, You Like to Get Things Right" by Jay Jennings -- Afterword by Donna Tartt -- Publisher's Note
On a trip to buy ponies, Frank Ross is shot dead by Tom Chaney, one of his own workers, for a horse, 150 dollars cash, and two California gold pieces. When Ross's unusually single-minded fourteen -year-old daughter, Mattie, arrives to claim his body, she discovers that the authorities are doing nothing to find Chaney. Then she hears of Rooster Cogburn--an ornery U.S. Marshall who, she's told, has grit and convinces him to join her in a quest into dark, dangerous Indian Territory to hunt Chaney down and avenge her father's murder.
