Set amid Indiana's Limberlost Swamp, this classic mixes astute observations on nature with the struggles of growing up in the early 20th century and the discoveries of independence and romance.
One of Gene Stratton-Porter's most famous novels, originally published in 1909. A story of a young girl who triumphed against adversity and poverty to achieve lasting happiness.
Elnora Comstock, an impoverished young girl growing up on the edge of the Limberlost swamp in Indiana, is a lover of nature who has an opportunity to pay for her education by collecting moths.
Deeply wounded by her embittered mother's lack of sympathy for her aspirations, Elnora finds comfort in the nearby Limberlost Swamp, whose beauty and rich abundance provide her with the means to better her life.
Elnora lives by the Linderlost, a great swamp in Indiana, neglected by her depressed widowed mother. Her high school days are a trial, as the other girls make fun of her rustic clothes and apparent poverty. But her love of the great outdoors comes to her aid, as she manages to make money by collecting and selling butterflies and moths. Her life becomes more interesting when a young man comes to lodge with them, however he is already engaged, so she has to settle for friendship and a shared love of the flora and fauna of the woods.
Indefatigable orphan Freckles faces some fairly steep obstacles: in addition to having no family, no name, and no knowledge of his own history, the young man has also lived his whole life without a right hand. Will his scrappy attitude and can-do spirit allow him to overcome these challenges and find love, material success and happiness?
