This French Norman chateau-style castle stands along the riverbank of the Shiawassee River in Owosso. It was built by James Oliver Curwood one of the country’s best selling authors at the turn of the century. The early 1900s, not Y2K. He wrote several books with many of them based on life in the remote northern wilderness. His final book was inspired by the sawmill town of Damon near West Branch. ( you can see my post about it HERE) His books have been out of print for years and because they are old enough, they are no longer protected by copyright laws and in the public domain. You can download them and several other books for free from the Gutenburg Project at Gutenberg.org.
If you are looking for something to read with the library and book stores closed this is an option. Most of the books are older books but many are popular are literary classics. It’s interesting looking at the list, I think almost all of them have been made into movies. probably because the studios did not have to pay the author for use of their work.
