Gene Stratton-Porter returns us to her beloved Midwestern woodlands with a hero modeled after Henry David Thoreau. He and his “wonderful, alluring” Ruth ultimately find idyllic bliss in the pure, unspoiled woods, but not before her mysterious past is revealed and resolved.

《收获者》出版于1911年,是作者的爱情小说之一。作品集热爱自然、高尚的道德和吸引人的情节于一体。小说讲了一个住在乡下的年轻人寻找梦中女孩,并与她相遇之后的故事。

The Harvester is one of Gene Stratton-Porter’s romantic novels which combine a love of nature, high moral ideals and a good plot. This is the story of a young man who lives in the country side with his dog and other animals and grows herbs to sell to medical drug supply houses. One evening, he has a vision of his Dream Girl and this is the story of his search for her and what happens when he finds her.

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。1885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.

The body of the dog arose on straightened legs and his muzzle dropped in the outstretched palm. A wind slightly perfumed with the odour of melting snow and unsheathing buds swept the lake beside them, and lifted a waving tangle of light hair on the brow of the man, while a level ray of the setting sun flashed across the water and illumined the graven, sensitive face, now alive with keen interest in the game being played.
