About this title


Gene Stratton-Porter was ecology-minded long before most of us ever even thought in terms of ecology. She writes of the Limberlost which was a wetlands in northern Indiana. In "Freckles", she tells the story of a young man, damaged physically, who becomes the better man in Horation Alger-style through pluck, determination, and honesty. "Freckles" gives us not only the story and romance of this boy and his "Swamp Angel", but delights us with the vision of the wildlife and the plantlife of a struggling, at-risk natural resource.

From the Back Cover:

In this book a homeless waif finds his deliverance in the primeval Limberlost swamp. Maimed and abandoned as an infant, Freckles seeks a chance to prove his worth. He is given that opportunity as the guard of the precious timber of the Limberlost. In his stewardship of the woods, he finds happiness in the companionship of the birds and other wild creatures and in the love of the beautiful Swamp Angel. This moving story of courage and virtue will warm the hearts of young and old.
