Summary
In September of 1966, John Wayne was in Texas filming War Wagon while the integrated Trojans of the University of Southern California arrived in Austin to do battle with a powerhouse of equal stature, the all-white Texas Longhorns. The Duke, a one-time pulling guard at USC, was there, accompanied by sycophants, with spurs on. This book is a fly-on-the-wall exploration of this wild weekend and an immersion into the John Wayne mythology
