Couple of books I can vouche for as a summer read. Grab a copy of GOAL DUST, the excellent biog of WOODY STRODE and as a co-read  JOHN WAYNE THE POLITICS OF CELEBRITY by GARRY WILLS, SUPERB! Also am half way into; HE RAN ALL THE WAY by ROBERT NOTT, a terrific account of JOHN GARFIELDS short but electric life! But the kicker for me this year, is the release of KATE BUFORDS stunning biog of BURT LANCASTER called BURT LANCASTER; AN AMERICAN LIFE!. Ah, nothing like a cold can and a fresh page!  :)

Forgot to mention the masterpiece written by JOSEPH McBRIDE; SEARCHING FOR JOHN FORD ; essential reading for students of the western. Also, check out JOHN FORD: THE COMPLETE FILMS (SCOTT EYMAN/PAUL DUNCAN)! HEAVEN FOR WESTERN BUFFS/FANS!

I'm in the middle of Eli Wallach's the Good the Bad and Me.

One of the few books where I can just flip through it and lose track of the page numbers because I'm so wrapped up in the story.

I'm reading  The Beleaguered City: The Vicksburg Campaign by Shelby Foote (recently deceased).  Next I will read his book Gettysburg.

I've read Eli's "The Good The Bad & Me", and am now reading the Mickey Knox book "The Good The Bad & The Dolce Vita".
