1904. Stratton-Porter was an American feminist, environmentalist, photographer and one of Indiana's most famous female authors. Many of her writings were moralistic and romantic novels. Freckles is the story of an orphaned boy who gets a job as a timber guard in Limberlost. He only has one hand, but much courage. As the plot unfolds, Freckles falls in love with the beautiful Swamp Angel and his noble past is revealed. The book proved so popular that she went on to write A Girl of the Limberlost.

When the gang was started for the south camp, Freckles was left to guard a fortune in the Limberlost. That he was under guard himself those first weeks he never knew.
