297 pp, small 8vo (7 3/4" H), hard cover (green tweed boards) in dust jacket (with 250/250 at top of front flap). "It had always been Mrs. Gene Stratton-Porter's intention to write a sequel to Freckle's adventures in the Limberlost, but there were so many other books to write that she never accomplished it. But the author's daughter Jeannette, herself an outdoor woman who has inherited her mother's love of the woods' creatures, has written the story that was in her mother's mind but never ha d been put on paper. In this book you will learn what happened to the redheaded Irish boy after he was taken to the home of his newly discovered relations in Ireland, how he languished there of homesickness for his beloved boss, Jim McClea n , f o r t h e bird-woman, and for the Swamp Angel of the Limberlost, and how he returned at long last to the colorful scenes of his earlier adventures, before the orphan boy with the red thatch had become Lord Terence Maxwell O'More." One leaf wi th co rn er cr ea se, very light browning to fore-edge of textblock. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, minor browning, creases at top corner of both flaps.
