Ellis Parker Butler wrote some poems, some short stories (most of which we already have in the catalogue) and a few novels which we mostly do not! It is light comedy mostly, and fairly short. I actually launched one of these before the Great Crash, and may launch it again someday, but in the meantime, these are the works we do not have so far:

Boy Scout's Book of Campfire Stories
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/26475

Kilo: Being the Love Story of Eliph' Hewlett, Book Agent
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3427

Swatty: A Story of Real Boys (autobiographical, school boy shenanigans!)
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/44154

Dominie Dean, A Novel
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/44220

In Pawn
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/44149

Prairie Gold (a rather interesting looking American Short Story collection including one by Butler)
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/39957

A lot of good stories here. There was a sort of movement at the beginning of the 20th Century to promote regional writers.
Prairie Schooner, which is a literary magazine published quarterly at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, was first published in 1926.

Boy Scout campfire stories - is that a project? Count me in.

No, the project hasn't been launched by anyone yet - this thread is a "suggestion" for someone to start a project for any of these books. For currently active projects you need to look in the "Readers Wanted" forum.
