Set near the Limberlost Swamp in Indiana at the beginning of the 20th century, "A Girl of the Limberlost" is the story of Elnora Comstock, a young girl who is just entering high school at the outset of the novel. The story is one of Elnora's struggles to overcome her poverty; to win the love of her mother, who blames Elnora for her husband's death; and to find a romantic love of her own. A classic and romantic coming of age story, "A Girl of the Limberlost" will delight readers of all ages.

《一个利姆波罗斯特的女孩》出版于1909年8月。场景是二十世纪初印第安纳州的一个湿地。小说刚开始的时候,女主人公刚刚进入高中。小说讲的是女主人公克服贫困,赢得母亲的心,并找寻自己的爱情的故事。

A Girl of the Limberlost, a novel written by American writer and naturalist Gene Stratton-Porter, was published in August, 1909. It is considered a classic of Indiana literature. It is the sequel to her earlier novel Freckles.

吉恩·斯特拉顿·波特(1863-1924年),美国小说家和自然主义者。从其伤感的浪漫主义小说《无法无天》(1904年)和《肢体残缺的女孩》(1909年)中可以感知到她对大自然和野生生命丰富的了解和热爱。吉恩瓦·格蕾斯斯特·拉顿出生于印地安那州的瓦伯什郡,靠近林波洛斯特沼泽,因此她的大部分小说都以此为背景。1886年她与查尔斯·D·波特结婚。她最初在杂志上发表描写大自然的文章,还配有她自己画的插图或自拍的照片。

Gene Stratton-Porter (August 17, 1863 – December 6, 1924) was an American author, amateur naturalist, wildlife photographer, and one of the earliest women to form a movie studio and production company. She wrote some best-selling novels and well-received columns in national magazines, such as McCalls. Her works were translated into several languages, including Braille, and Stratton-Porter was estimated to have had 50 million readers around the world.

As the girls passed her, vacancies seemed to open to meet them. Their friends were moving over, beckoning and whispering invitations. Every one else was seated, but no one paid any attention to the white-faced girl stumbling half-blindly down the aisle next the farthest wall. So she went on to the very end facing the stage. No one moved, and she could not summon courage to crowd past others to several empty seats she saw. At the end of the aisle she paused in desperation, while she stared back at the whole forest of faces most of which were now turned upon her.
