Russell Crowe has been compared to Marlon Brando, Errol Flynn, Spencer Tracy and Humphrey Bogart. He demonstrates a versatility as an actor rarely seen among today's generation of Hollywood stars.

His cast of memorable characters ranges from the raw physicality of the Roman general Maximus in Gladiator or the skinhead Hando in Romper Stomper to the psychological complexity of the brilliant but mentally ill mathematician John Nash in A Beautiful Mind.

Crowe's climb to the top of Hollywood's A-list has been a tough one, made all the more difficult by his feisty temperament and a cocky--some say arrogant--self-confidence. His off-screen brawls and romantic dalliances have made headlines as often as his Oscar-winning performances.

This biography reveals the larger-than-life personality that fuels both the fiercely dedicated actor and the Australian bad boy--a personality that has taken Russell Crowe from a one-time rock 'n roll wannabe Down Under to his status today as a true Hollywood superstar.

About the authors

A Communications and Broadcasting graduate, Stone Wallace's career ambitions have taken him along many paths: actor, announcer, boxer, celebrity interviewer, advertising copywriter, and creative writing and media instructor. He is also the author of 12 books. While Stone has published stories in other genres, ranging from horror to history, he finds writing Westerns to be the most satisfying. It is a field he has appreciated and embraced since reading the classic stories of Louis L'Amour, whose works provide an escape back to a time when the lands were clean, heroes and villains were clearly defined and values were more straightforward and simple. It is a tradition of storytelling that Stone decided to follow. Denim Ryder is Stone s first Western for AVALON. He has completed his second book Montana Dawn, and is currently at work on future titles for AVALON. Stone currently resides in Winnipeg, Canada with his loving and supportive wife Cindy, who is also an author, as well as storyteller and children's entertainer.
