Meet the Real Rooster Cogburn!

You think you know the true story of Rooster Cogburn? Well not so fast. The real story is between the pages of a new book just released by Kensington Publishing. And Brett Cogburn is the author. The reason he knows so much about the infamous gunfighter is because he happens to be the real Rooster's great-grandson.

Rooster is the non-fiction biography of Brett's gunfighting great-grandfather and his battle against the Hanging Judge's U.S. Deputy Marshals.  It has long been said by the uninformed that a real Rooster Cogburn never existed beyond the confines of True Grit, but indeed he did.  Fifteen years of research revealed a story unique and exceptional in its own right.
