    This book was written several generations ago When I first read it than 40 years ago? it was a bit dated already but a basic coming of age plus love interest story with a lot of tidbits about nature thrown in Rereading it now I found myself noticing the cultural differences between now and when it was written Most noticeable were these 1 Class stratification Upper class people were just plain not supposed to even think about marrying those from the lower class particularly if it was likely that they were bastards or not of good breeding2 Good manners and ethics are apparently something that can be inherited even if you were abandoned as an infant and raised in an orphanage Good breeding will obviously overcome any home environment3 Clearing a swamp that is home to all kinds of rare animals birds insects trees etc is progress and that is a good thing Yes take photos of them first and collect specimens but do go ahead and clear the swamp4 Shooting an otter so that its pelt could be made into a muff for a gift was a good idea Nobody even considered whether the recipient might not have preferred to allow the otter to liveSo this time instead of paying particular attention to all the tidbits about birds trees flowers etc I found myself reading it like an historian or sociologist and marveling at just how much American culture has changed in the last hundred years

    Spoiler alert I chose this because I absolutely LOVE Laddie also by the author This one was okay I would have given it one star but I didn't like the ending Freckles was an orphan who didn't know his parents and who had a terrible childhood but he turned into an honest honorable young man I didn't like that in the end it was inferred that he could only be such a fine young man if his parents had been rich or of noble birth And then of course it turns out that he is the son of a Lord So what One doesn't have to be rich to be good in fact I think being rich actually makes it harder to be virtuous and honorable It wasn't Freckles parentage that made him the man he was it was his decisions and choices He chose not to lie and steal He chose to be a man of his word He chose to love others It had nothing to do with being a lord

    I began reading Gene Stratton Porter's book when I was a teenager and I realize now that as an adult they are rather boring at least to meI began reading Gene Stratton Porter's book when I was a teenager and I realize now as an adult they are rather boring to me or at least this one wasFreckles is a story about a one handed man who is hired by a lumber company to keep other people from stealing trees in the Limberlost As a naturalist Gene Statton Porter evidently sees nothing wrong with this picture All trees should be saved And moths and butterflies should not be pinned on a board to save as she had done in her other bookbooksThe interesting thing about the Limberlost is the real story The Limberlost aka Loblolly Swamp covered 13000 acres in Indiana at one time Now it is being revitalized The name Limberlost came from a true story about a man named James Miller who was tall and limber He went out into the swamp one day and never returned so since his nickname was Limber Jim the swamp became named Limberlost But the another story says that it was named after Jim Corbus who went hunting and disappeared in the swamp I am going with the first one

    Even better than A Girl Of The LimberlostFreckles is and Irish orphan who has spent nearly all twenty of his years in a foundling home stories abound of how when he was only a few months old he was brutally beaten and left dead than alive on the orphanage steps Freckles wishes he knew for sure that it wasn't his mother who left him that she loved him just as much as normal mothers do after all isn't that what every orphan dreams of? Even once he has moved on to work as the Limberlost guard he can't banish the worry that he was always unwanted he's emotionally scarred no doubt from the taunts of other orphans But that is not to say he isn't loved now he uickly won the trust respect and love of his Boss who wishes that Freckles was his son and the admiration of The Swamp Angel a young girl who works with The Butterfly Woman collecting her specimens But for some reason that isn't enough for Freckles he needs to know the truth about himself and it's left to Angel to find it if not for him for herselfI can't believe I liked this so much that A Girl Of The Limberlost but I did Freckles is a lovable imperfect hero in ways than one; He's scarred both inside and out and he does the unthinkable by falling in love with a girl far above his station in life someone he'll never be worthy of That's what he thinks anyway The descriptions are beautiful I could see the Limberlost in colour because of them I saw the fear loneliness and wonder of the swamp what could be better? My only complaint is this I feel that Freckles should have let go of the past sooner and moved on His parentage didn't matter to his friends why should he continue to be tormented by it? Some ideas in this book are rather old fashioned or out of date I have always detested the thought that you can tell just by seeing how someone behaves whether they have upperclass parentage since those things are all in the blood That's rubbish when you are off the streets Someone lower class can be just as good as someone upperclass Imo Other than that I really loved this book and don't know why I didn't pick it up before G rating for this sweet heartfelt read Definitely a reread Found at

    It was a charming tale A sweet love story a harmony of the nature good and brave people honorable and devoted feelings In other words an old fashioned story One can't expect reality If one does expect one will be disappointed Because although there aren't dragons or magic fairies such stories are too sweet to be trueI think that if I had read it in a better matched mood I would have enjoyed it a little But still I can appreciate a classic tale for young people And I am going to read A Girl of the Limberlost a seuel in the futureI have one objection view spoilerthat Freckles turned out to be from upper class and a rich family I understand that thanks to this he could showed how much he wasn't greedy but still Such high level of happy ending was too much for me hide spoiler

    Simply wonderful Looking forward to reading The Girl of LimberlostI would give this book than 5 stars I love Freckles A young man of integrity and grace

    So much melodramaThe story follows a redheaded one armed orphan boy who gets hired by a noble lumber baron to make sure no one steals his trees before he chops them down Orphan boy is noble and good falls in love with an eually noble girl and nobly guards the trees through hell or high water The book was written in 1904 and the date obviously shines through I've been trying to place the genre It isn't women's fictionthe noble male hero is clearly intended to inspire male readers It somewhat reminds me of old fashion romances like Ivanhoe or Captain Blood but at the same time feels too tame for that Maybe Little Lord Fauntleroy feels like the best example though clearly a lot changed in the 18 years separating the two books I understand why many enjoy this work especially for those who grew up with it I found many elements of it satisfying particularly the author's clear passion for nature and the delightful writing style But I really really disliked the heroine of the piece Angel She's a strong character but also too good and perfect and noble In her defense she doesn't necessarily present herself this way and a less loving narrator would easily call her spoiled but Freckles the titular hero adores her Like kisses her footprints in the mud adores her He thinks her vastly above him and yet dwells on her perfections constantly For all the reader knows this is the first female he has ever met so I found his insta adoration can you even call it insta love? rather unlikely and boring But what I most found distressing about their romance is that throughout the distinction is clearly made that Freckles is a Man and Angel is still a Girl An impetuous playful Girl I never felt like her transition to Woman made sense If she even had a transition Generally a 4 star read up until the last third which ended up being so dramatic and unlikely I had to force myself to finish As a side note I tried imagining reading this book to my nephew some day and it just made me laugh to think about Even if he turns into the redheaded poet we all imagine he might I wouldn't put him through thisview spoilerI almost wish Freckles had died I think I would have given it 4 stars Melodramatic and noble and utterly stupid? Oh yes without a doubt But better than this nonsense about Angel saving his life again and again hide spoiler
