I Was That Masked Man

by Clayton Moore with Frank Thompson

Every baby boomer in America knows who that masked man was. He was mysterious and mythic at the same time, the epitome of the American hero: compassionate, honest, patriotic, inventive, an unswerving champion of justice and fair play. This biography, written with Frank Thompson, details Moore's career before and after his years with Tonto, sketches in his personal life, and relates how his fans were outraged when, in 1979, Moore was legally forbidden to wear his famous mask in public appearances.
