Zane Gray heads 1920’s bestselling novels list

Copyright protection for most novels of the Roaring Twenties has expired. As a consequence, all of the 1920 bestsellers are available in digital format. Links in the list below are to the Gutenberg Project unless otherwise marked.

If you prefer print to pixels, you’ll find some of the books still around: paper those days was good quality.

1 The Man of the Forest by Zane Gray is still not to hard to find in hardback,  paperback, and large print versions. If your library system doesn’t have a copy, check  Project Gutenberg.

3    The Re-Creation of Brian Kent by Harold Bell Wright
4    The River’s End by James Oliver Curwood

I'm passionate about helping people learn through the medium of nonfiction writing. Although I occasionally have an idea of my own, I mostly build education tools by recycling and repurposing other folks' ideas.
