Extractions: American feminist, environmentalist, photographer- one of Indiana's most famous female authors. Stratton-Porter's moralistic and romantic novels have been translated into many languages. By the time of her death, her books sales had exceeded ten million. "Yes," said the Bird Woman, " I will buy them, also the big moth caterpillars that are creeping everywhere now, and the cocoons that they will spin just about this time. I have a sneaking impression that the mystery, wonder, and the urge of their pure beauty, are going to force me to picture and paint our moths and put them into a book for all the world to see and know. We Limberlost people must not be selfish with the wonders God has given to us. We must share with those poor cooped-up city people the best we can. To send them a beautiful book, that is the way, is it not, little new friend of mine?"

Extractions: Gene Stratton-Porter (1863-1924) As a child, Gene Stratton-Porter's solitary habits were focused on nature study. She loved to observe birds and all manner of living things. This passion and a desire to support herself led to a career writing articles, which she illustrated with her own photographs. Her fiction, an immediate hit with national magazines, evolved into popular novels and poetry. Many of the books were based on nature themes and strong characters, such as in The Girl of the Limberlost . She became Indiana's most popular writer with a claimed 50 million readers, and eight of her books were made into movies. Her influence caused Americans to rethink the country's headlong rush into resource depletion and led the way for national conservation initiatives. In 1912, she purchased land on Sylvan Lake in northeast Indiana to build a second log home. This place, "Wildflower Woods," became an outdoor laboratory where she created research gardens and a wildlife refuge. Graphic: Gene Stratton-Porter's home on Sylvan Lake.

Extractions: Contact Us Biography Limberlost Publications and resources After oil was discovered on some land that the Porters owned, they built a large house on the edge of the Limberlost swamp. Gene began to observe and document the swamp area in earnest, photographing much of the area and its unique wildlife. Some of her early photographs were published, but she soon found that publishers were reluctant to commit to publishing purely non-fiction nature works. Frustrated that very few naturalist books were even available in print at that time, Gene reached an agreement with her publishers to write a series of novels to offset their losses for printing her non-fiction nature books. Gene Stratton-Porter's first novel, The Song of the Cardinal, was written in 1903, followed by Freckles in 1904, At the Foot of the Rainbow in 1907 and the popular A Girl of the Limberlost in 1911. Although literary critics were on the whole not impressed by her archetypal characters and allegorical/moralistic storylines, her descriptions and observations of nature and the unique wildlife of the swamp area captured the imaginations of readers worldwide, and her works left an indelible impression on generations of readers. By the time of her death, her books had been translated into over 50 languages, with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide, making her one of the most important writers of the first quarter of the twentieth century.

In the closing pages of the novel that is essentially his story, Freckles discovers that he is in fact the wealthy Terence Maxwell O'More, of Dunderry House, County Clare, Ireland.7 In the year or so from the novel's opening where he appears at a lumbering camp in Indiana, Freckles, a nineteen-year old "waif" three months out of a Chicago orphanage that was his home since infancy, has come a very long way indeed. He soon earns the respect of all and the love of many, not least that of the Angel, the sixteen year-old daughter of a prominent local businessman, a girl of wealth and social standing, a young woman whose virtues and abilities are manifold and marvelous. But he is haunted by the belief that his parents, after cutting off his right hand, abandoned him. He in fact lost his hand in an accident, his parents perishing in desperate attempts to save the beloved child from their burning home.
