Gene Stratton-Porter

a.k.a. Geneva Gene (nee) Stratton

Author Code: AGSP

Born: Aug. 17, 1863 - Lagro, Wabash County, Indiana, USA

Died: Dec. 6, 1924 - Los Angeles, California, USA

Because of the frequent moves of her family in her early years, Gene's education was mostly self-taught. She married Charles Porter in 1886 and the following year they moved to Geneva, Indiana. Being by the Wabash river and Limberlost Swamp, her interest in nature blossomed and she began to photograph the wildlife in the area. She also began to write at this time, primarily non-fiction works for which she had difficulty getting published. She finally agreed with publishers to produce some fictional works which would make her non-fiction more acceptable. Her first book, The Song of the Cardinal, appeared in 1903 and was very popular. In 1907, she published What I Have Done with Birds, her first book on natural history. Stratton-Porter realized very early on that man's destruction of the natural environment, the clearing of forests, etc, would have an adverse effect on the climate and was vociferous in her condemnation of these acts. She became one of the most widely-read female authors of the first part of the 20th century and had numerous best-sellers during her career. She died as the result of a traffic accident when her vehicle was struck by a streetcar in Los Angeles. Her works include Freckles (1904), At the Foot of the Rainbow (1907), A Girl of the Limberlost (1909), Birds of the Bible (1909), The Harvester (1911), Moths of the Limberlost (1912), Laddie (1913), Birds of the Limberlost (1914), Michael O'Halloran (1915), Morning Face (1916), A Daughter of the Land (1918), Her Father's Daughter (1921), Wings (1923), The Keeper of the Bees (1925 Posthumous) and The Magic Garden (1927 Posthumous).
