[2021 marks the 50th birthday of Project Gutenberg, the amazing web resource for full texts from across literary and cultural history. So this week I wanted to share a handful of the American literary works you can read in full on PG—add yours for a crowd-sourced weekend reading list, please!]
There are few American novels I’ve written about more often than Maria Amparo Ruiz de Burton’s The Squatter and the Don (1885)—and as much as I’d love to hear your thoughts on those many pieces of mine, I’d be even more excited to hear that you’ve had the chance to read and respond to this Mexican American historical novel of 19th century California itself!
Last Project Gutenberg reading tomorrow,
PS. What would you add to our reading list?
