Product Description

Freckles by Gene Stratton-Porter is a classic novel about an orphaned teenager who longs to find his place in the world. Freckles has had a hard life, even from the beginning where he was discovered on the stoop of a Chicago orphanage badly beaten and missing a hand. Throughout the years he tries to make himself useful and find fulfilling work, and it seems he finally has at Indiana's Limberlost Swamp, guarding a valuable stand of timber.

Faithful and brave in his daily tasks, Freckles comes to appreciate the beauty and majesty of the natural world amid the wetlands' sights, sounds, and silences. As nature works miracles in the boy's lonely, starved heart, Freckles meets a kind and gentle girl who collects specimens for a wildlife photographer. Despite his growing love for his Swamp Angel, Freckles feels himself far below her station --- until the opportunity arises for him to prove his true worth.
