William Dale Jennings – The Cowboys

Posted by Dirk under: books .

According to Wikipedia, Jennings wrote this book based on a film treatment he had sold, which was made into a movie with the same name, starring John Wayne.  That happens to be one of my favorite movies, I’ve watched it many times and the book follows the movie pretty closely (or vice versa).

Also on wikipedia it says the book “caused a lot of controversy among publishers due to its glimmers of homoeroticism”.  I’d say those few glimmers are the main things that pop out as not being in the movie.  And they aren’t major things, just glimmers, like the article says.

If you are a big fan of the movie, you’ll probably enjoy reading the book too.
