Published in 1909, this book is considered a classic of Indiana literature. It is set near the Limberlost Swamp, a impressive wetland region, which eventually ceased to exist. The author created a main character, Elnora, with impressive intellect and strong moral and ethical values. The book is very interesting and enjoyable.

This book was written almost 100 years ago and it still has the ability to connect to people our age right now. It is a book about courage and determination.

Delightful and charming. I read an ebook version, which seemed to have some strange jumps in text / logic, but maybe that’s how it was originally written. Regardless, I loved it.
