First published in 1909, the story concerns Elnora Comstock who lives a reclusive life with her mother in the swamps of Indiana called the Limberlost. One day she discovers that a hobby she has cultivated all her life, collecting moth and other insect specimens from the swamps near her home, can actually finance the education she longs for. The first part is a family tale, where Elnora grapples with her mother's moody ways while pursuing her educational goals. The second part is a romance.

The novel is set in Indiana. Most of the action takes place either in or around the Limberlost Swamp, or in the nearby town of Onabasha.The novel's heroine Elnora Comstock is a poor girl who lives with her widowed mother Katharine Comstock on the edge of the Limberlost Swamp. At the beginning of the novel, Elnora is just beginning high school, where her unfashionable dress adds to her difficulty blending in with the other students.I'm gonna get all mushy. Not that I really need to jump onto this pile of praise. But this is a wonderful, decidedly old-fashioned, feel-good book. In my mid teens, a big barrel arrived at our house one evening. It contained all the books that my mother read as a child and was storing at my grandparents house. Among them were Freckles, The Harvester and A Girl of the Limberlost. I don't know what possessed me, being a guy and all, but I started with Limberlost. This is about me. The wild child bare-footing his way through the southwest Ohio woods, studying everything that caught his attention, collecting cocoons every winter experiencing whatever ecstasy is available to a 13-year-old when they emerged in June. And there I was, too, plotting, planning, and conniving to get into college. So, in my dotage, or maybe half-dotage, when I require myself to re-read a book that really impressed me earlier in life from time to time, I decided to re-read Limberlost. It's still wonderful. I'm a little wiser. I can see some of the formal seams in the writing, now. But that's fine. This is a good read. Now to buy The Harvester again and let it guilt me from my bookshelf until I re-read it too.

A Gripping Romance in a Natural Setting “To my way of thinking and working, the greatest service a piece of fiction can do any reader is to leave him with a higher ideal of life than he had when he began. If in one small degree it shows him where he can be...gentler, saner, cleaner, kindlier...it is a wonder-working book. If it opens his eyes to one beauty in nature he never saw for himself and leads him one step toward the God of the Universe, it is a beneficial book...” ― Gene Stratton-Porter In Gene Stratton-Porter's novel, The Harvester, a noble and kind man harvests wild plants for medicines. When meets the woman of his dreams, he pursues her with all his heart. This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents.
