This novel was made into one of the finest Western movies ever filmed, and starred John Wayne. "These people had a kind of courage that may be the finest gift of man: the courage of those who simply keep on, and on, doing the next thing, far beyond all reasonable endurance, seldom thinking of themselves as martyred, and never thinking of themselves as brave. . . ."
