Beschreibung

Freckles (1904) is a novel by Gene Stratton-Porter. An immediate bestseller, Freckles—her second novel—established Stratton-Porter’s reputation as a leading naturalist and writer of the American Midwest. Written for children and adults alike, Freckles is a classic tale of struggle and survival set in one of Indiana’s iconic wilderness regions. Raised in an orphanage, targeted for his red hair, accent, and missing right hand, Freckles grew accustomed to constant abuse. As an adult, he escapes Chicago and makes his way to the Limberlost Swamp, a vast wetland region along the Wabash River in Indiana. There, he finds work with the Grand Rapids lumber company, earning the trust of experienced woodsman McLean. Tasked with walking the perimeter of the forest to protect the company’s land from thieves, Freckles gains a reputation as a dedicated and efficient guardian of the trees. When a fight leaves him badly injured, he meets a beautiful young girl while recovering from his injuries. For the first time in his life, he knows what it is to be loved. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Gene Stratton-Porter’s Freckles is a classic work of American literature reimagined for modern readers.
