1937 Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell: Loved it. Read it YEARS ago.
1940 The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck: Another all time favorite book!
1961 To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: Wow, this one needs a re-read big time!
1975 The Killer Angels Michael Shaara: Liked it a lot.
1986 Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry: Another liked it a lot book.
