A novel, The Dragon of Wantley, was written by Owen Wister (best known as the author of The Virginian) in 1892. Published by Lipincott Press, the story is a comic "burlesque" (in the author's words), concerning the "true" story of the Dragon. It is a romantic story set at Christmas time in the early 13th century. The book was a surprise success, going through four editions over the next ten years. This is the 1895 edition.
