Do books by Pearl S. Buck count? Anything by her.

I have to add Silent Spring by Rachel Carson to my list.
I read this NF book back in 1962 (it started the environmentalism
movement).

If I stick to my usual definition of classics as "published 100 years or more ago":
Little Women
The House of Mirth
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
The Red Badge of Courage

If I expand that definition to "published at least 50 years ago" ...
To Kill a Mockingbird
Lamb In His Bosom
Gone With the Wind
Little House in the Big Woods (series)
The Old Man and the Sea
Johnny Got His Gun
True Grit
Where the Red Fern Grows
