Set in the Limberlost Swamp area of Indiana, "Freckles" is American writer and naturalist Gene Stratton-Porter's 1904 novel about a one-handed adult orphan who takes a job guarding timber in the swamp. While there, he becomes enchanted by the beauty of the wildlife in the swamp and of a nameless young woman that he meets there, whom we know only as 'The Swamp Angel'. Our main character, whom we know only as 'Freckles' is challenged by the mystery of his past and parentage. While he is loved and admired by all he meets, he feels unworthy of Angel's love and must struggle to overcome this feeling of lowliness.

This is truly a forgotten classic. I first read it many years ago, and recently had the desire to pick it up again. I found that it was not as readily available as many other classics, which is certainly a shame as it is a wonderful book.

The story concerns a young orphan, named Freckles, who has personally experienced many of the worst aspects of humanity in his short life. Sadly, these experiences have left Freckles with only one hand, no material possessions, little education, and most importantly, no concerned friends or loved ones. As a result of the kindness of Mr. Mclean, part owner of the grand rapids lumber company, Freckles finds himself serving as the protector of timber in the Limberlost swamp. The timber itself is very valuable, and there are several unsavory characters who would love to have a chance to sell the timber for themselves. This employment proves to be life changing for Freckles, and ultimately leads to his discovery of the history of his past. The book also features a charming love story that is both tender and engaging.
