Overview

Gene Stratton-Porter (1863-1924) 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 of the best selling novels and well-received columns in magazines of the day. She became a wildlife photographer, specializing in the birds and moths in one of the last of the vanishing wetlands of the lower Great Lakes Basin. The Limberlost and Wildflower Woods of northeastern Indiana were the laboratory and inspiration for her stories, novels, essays, photography, and movies. Her first attributed novel, The Song of the Cardinal (1903) met with great commercial success. Her novels Freckles (1904) and A Girl of the Limberlost (1909) are set in the wooded wetlands and swamps of the disappearing central Indiana ecosystems she loved and documented. Although Stratton-Porter wanted to focus on nature books, it was her romantic novels that made her famous and generated the finances that allowed her to pursue her nature studies. Her other works include: The Harvester (1911), A Daughter of the Land (1918) and Her Father's Daughter (1921).
