Gene Stratton-Porter (1863-1924) was born on a farm in Wabash County, Indiana.

There she organized her own motion picture company to capitalize on the national popularity of her books. Other novels reissued by Indiana University Press include Freckles, Laddie, The Harvester, and The Keeper of the Bees.

A book full of colorful, lively characters. Kate is a wise,complicated woman, who sometimes surprises with her unwise decisions. This is a typical Stratton-Porter story.

Wonderful story of a woman's independence, perseverance, and hope in the face of rejection of family and poor choices of her own. It is heartwarming and humorous. A great homespun tale. Also, interwoven themes of land use and its value.
