The Splendid Road

The November 11 1924 edition of the Toronto Daily Star included this ad for a serialization of a novel in McCall’s magazine:


Vingie E. Roe (1879-1958) wrote more than thirty novels, specializing in Westerns. She once proudly proclaimed, “I have never written a dirty sex story and I never will.” (Well, okay then.)

The Splendid Road was adapted into a silent film in 1925; the film is now lost.

The Oklahoma State University library maintains a collection of her work. Project Gutenberg includes two of her novels, which are available for free download.
