Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in the author's adopted home of California in the 1920s, this is Gene Stratton-Porter's last novel, a story filled with wisdom, a love of nature, and her own abiding optimism. In it a Master Bee Keeper, his bees, and the natural beauty of California restore a wounded World War I veteran to health.

Book News Annotation:

A study of the art-thought of the three principle spokesmen for the traditionalist view in art production and criticism for the period from the 1870s to around 1950. This last Gene Stratton-Porter (1863-1924) novel is an ode to her adopted home, California, and its natural beauty. Porter was injured in an automobile accident and died before its first publication in 1925.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Broken in spirit and body, James Lewis MacFarland, a wounded veteran of World War I, decides to escape from the military hospital before he is sent to a hospital for tubercular patients. He sets out on a great adventure which takes him to the healing sun and ocean of California.

Gma, January 1, 2010 (view all comments by Gma)
Copyrighted in 1925 (a year after the author's death) it has the charm, language, mores of years past but with striking parallels to troubles and joys of today. It is free of the electronic ephemera cluttering our lives and minds. (an admittedly ironic comment submitted on an item of 'electronic clutter').
