Rambo and Me: The Story Behind the Story by David Morrell
David Morrell discloses how he came to create Rambo in the book, First Blood in his essay, Rambo and Me: The Story Behind the Story. Morrell's honesty about the inspiration behind First Blood and the Rambo character is inspiring and may be surprising to some, especially those who have only seen the Rambo movies. He also explains the journey First Blood took from book to movie without romanticizing the process. This essay is well worth the read for any fan of David Morrell and/or Rambo!
