Gene Stratton-Porter was a pioneer naturalist, wilderness advocate, and author

Gene Stratton-Porter was a pioneer naturalist, wilderness advocate, and author. A Girl of the Limberlost, Freckles, and The Harvester demonstrate the power of Stratton-Porter’s writing for young people as she explores how the natural world can provide not just a means of sustenance, but also a source of strength in the face of the world’s difficulties and, ultimately, a place where you can be true to yourself.

Stratton-Porter began to photograph birds and animals of the Swamp. Her early photographs appeared in the magazines Recreation and Outing. In 1901 she published her first piece of fiction in Metropolitan magazine. Stratton-Porter made her debut with The Song of the Cardinal. The next story, Freckles, about an orphan who gets a job as a timber guard in Limberlost, became a success. The book was made into a film in 1935 and 1960. During World War I Stratton-Porter moved to California.

The young woman was Gene Stratton-Porter, who would brave the bogs, thickets, mosquitoes, and snakes for two decades, gathering impressions, and would write a series of books that carried the name of the Limberlost to millions of readers worldwide. A few of those books were natural history, chiefly about moths and birds, but most of them were novels, including the three immensely popular tales included in this volume.

  • I was initially delighted to find a copy of this 100-year-old book for $11.62, as I thought it might be unobtainable. However, I almost wish I had put the money toward an antique book instead.

    Just a word of warning about the quality of the printing. This book has been scanned and reprinted. Paper is fresh and new, cover is fine, and the content is the same as the original book from 1909. The reproduction of photos is particularly bad, most being just dark blobs. I could make better prints than that on the old church office Xerox machine in the early 1980's, so I don't know why they didn't take more care. The type is varied, light and dark, not the best, but totally legible. I was grateful for the content, which I am able to use, but disappointed in the reproduction of the book.


  • My mother-in-law has always wanted to read this book, because she likes the authors other works, 'Freckles' and 'A Girl of the Limberlost', so when I saw it on Amazon, I knew it would make an absolutely perfect gift for Mother's Day. I was right, she loved it!!

  • Excellent quality copy, great value/price from seller. Accurate description

  • Very nice book.
