Gene Stratton-Porter (August 17, 1863 – December 6, 1924), born Geneva Grace Stratton, was a Wabash County, Indiana, native who became a self-trained American author, nature photographer, and naturalist. In 1917 Stratton-Porter used her position and influence as a popular, well-known author to urge legislative support for the conservation of Limberlost Swamp and other wetlands in the state of Indiana.

The family that serves as the focus of the novel isn't perfect, but they manage to fix their foibles and come together to make something beautiful and lasting. Stratton-Porter died on December 6, 1924, in Los Angeles, from injuries following a traffic accident when her limousine was hit by a trolley car. She was buried in Hollywood Cemetery in California. Her book, The Keeper of the Bees was posthumously published.

Gene Stratton-Porter was an incredibly talented author who wrote novels, published from 1903 to 1927, with naturalist settings along with nature books and magazine articles. These books are windows into a world at the beginning of the 20th century in rural Indiana that no longer exists. The author was a noted naturalist and collector of specimens of insects & plants, as well as a popular author in the early century.

A Daughter of The Land by Gene Stratton-Porter is a story taking place in a very real God-guided world. The characters are human and the situations are realistic. Essentially, it is the tale about the growth, physically and spiritually, of Katherine Eleanor Bates. I’d highly recommend this book for anyone, but it could be especially helpful if you were going through hard times.

  • Adam Bates and his wife have sixteen children; seven boys and nine girls. When his sons turn twenty-one, Mr. Bates buys them a farm. When his daughters grow up, they are given nothing except the right to leave the terrible atmosphere they grew up in to teach school.

    Kate, the youngest, is not allowed to leave at all. She must stay at home doing farm-work until she marries … if she can. But Kate rebels and finds another way to go to a school to train to be a teacher. Kate’s family casts her off and leaves her to make her own way in the world.

    A Daughter of The Land by Gene Stratton-Porter is a story taking place in a very real God-guided world. The characters are human and the situations are realistic.

    Essentially, it is the tale about the growth, physically and spiritually, of Katherine Eleanor Bates.

    I’d highly recommend this book for anyone, but it could be especially helpful if you were going through hard times. It teaches you that, no matter what low place you are in, there is always a way out; there is always a happy ending.

    My favorite thing about A Daughter of the Land:
    The characters, the characters, the characters! Every single one of them is truly human and perfectly developed. I especially liked Kate; stubborn as a mule and determined that no matter how hard it is, she will make her life into what she wants it to be.

    My least favorite thing about A Daughter of The Land:
    Sometimes it could be a bit confusing. Sometimes it seemed a bit melodramatic.

  • This is a 5 Star rating!
    The writing of this book was perfect and the story was written smoothly.
    I have never read Gene Stratton-Porter' s books before, but this book was hard to put down.
    The Bates family were well known in this small town, in which he owned most of the land. Kate the youngest and was left to all the work needed for the farm. She had spunk and spoke her mind. She ran out of the house and begun a new life of many rocky moments.
    An unloved husband, his mother and 2 kids and an illness was a beginning part of her independence and a life she was not prepared for.
    And then to her shock a new beginning that she never expected happened..... A MUST READ for any young adult!

  • This book tells the story of Kate Bates, a young woman with hopes and dreams that she must strike out on her own to achieve. The youngest child of a very land rich family, she was expected to remain in the family home and, essentially, be the maid, cook, and farm worker while her siblings were allowed land if they were male and good marriages if they were female. Kate wanted more for herself and was inspired by part of a sermon that she heard while walking past the local church. From hearing those words, Kate set out to achieve her long term goals to teach school and to own her own land. She faced steep odds. Her father was enraged that she would not yield to his demands and put her out of the family home. She was forced to make her own way.

    This is not a book that I would have picked up from a bookstore shelf, I found it on a book reader, but once I started to read it, I was hooked on the tale. I would probably suggest this book to young women as a book of inspiration. If you want something badly enough you might be like Kate and dedicate your life to achieving your goals.

  • "A Daughter of the Land" is a book I read because my mother, down from my grandmother, passed this book on to me. I received it way back in my teenage years and I read it then. I found it harsh and depressing...the story of the 12th child, a daughter, who was expected to slave at home for her family while the other children received many comforts and wealth from their austere, but abundant farming family. Yuk.
    I picked it up again when I was about thirty and re-read it, thinking maybe I had misjudged it. No, it was Yuk.
    At a conference in 2006 the author of this book (Gene Stratton-Porter) was highly recommended for other works, which I then read... and ...LOVED. Her books now inspire my high recommendations and comments. Soo...I gave "A Daughter of the Land" another chance. It was humbling to realize that the book wasn't at fault before, it was me who hadn't yet grown up enough. Suffering was indeed still a theme, but so was hope and humbleness and loving in spite of disappointment. It was about forethought and wisdom and about the consequences of following foolishness, but it was not preachy. "Daughter" is not like her other works. It has a humanity which is more pronounced, and yet the nobility seems the richer for it.
