If you saw the Wonderworks movie you certainly didn't get a very clear picture of this marvelous story. Did you know that Gene Stratton-Porter has become so famous Illinois is setting aside for restoration a good chunk of what used to be the Limberlost?

Truly a book from the past where life was very different from today's world.....the beautiful, poetic writing places old-fashioned customs and class expectations against an assertive and confident young woman and a hero who could not believe he could rise above his current station in life. The characters have to be viewed through a historical lens and yet the story is like an enchanting fairy tale where there are real life hero and heroines who can save the day.
I enjoyed the story BECAUSE of the historical lens....The characters faced many hard times yet they seem so naive and innocent to us. We've come a long way from Freckles, The Angel and The Bird Woman and the whole gang of characters. I enjoyed reading this book as well as the author's, Girl of the Limberlost. It reminded me of the good time I had reading books such as Black Beauty and Lassie, Come Home when I was young.
