The National Road and Zane Grey Museum in Norwich is among more than 50 historical sites and museums under the care of the Ohio Historical Society. It is divided into different sections and one of them features items and a setting connected with the life and stories of Zane Grey, a native Ohioan best known for Westerns like Riders of the Purple Sage.

Ever hear of the Code of the Old West? No? It helps to know it if you want to read books by Zane Grey, which you can find on the Zane Grey page of www.gutenberg.orgZane Grey’s West Society explains the Code well.

If you wrote down a code that sums up what you think is the right way to live, what would be on it? See if you can come up with a good solid list of about 10 or 12 codes to live by. Then ask a family member or friend if it sounds about right.
