Books Written By William T. Hornaday

Compiled by David L. Eby

According to one reliable source, William T. Hornaday was the author of 26 books during his lifetime. They were widely read and made him very famous. There are sources on the Internet that claim he wrote over 100 books but that seems to be a gross overstatement based on information from the Library of Congress. Some Hornaday books had many reprints.
