Description

When I was 10, I discovered Stratton-Porter's book, A Girl of the Limberlost. I cannot even count the number of times I read that book, and my love for it continues today. At the Foot of the Rainbow reinforces my belief that Mrs. Stratton-Porter is a most gifted author.

When I was 10, I discovered Stratton-Porter's book, A Girl of the Limberlost. Her body of work, produced while she was wife, mother, student, produced in a time when "women of quality" didn't do much more than care for home and husband, rivals that of any of today's liberated women who write prolifically but not necessarily well.

Beloved American author Gene Stratton-Porter was one of the first influential female figures to raise awareness about the importance of conservation. Like many of her novels, At the Foot of the Rainbow takes place in a beautiful outdoor setting against which a complex human drama unfolds. Will this strange love triangle come to a happy conclusion, or will it implode in tragedy? Więcej informacji.

Stratton-Porter's biographical information states that she was completely self-taught as writer and it shows, in the best possible way. There's a ramshackle zestiness about the storytelling which would have been ironed out at a writing school, the highly phonetic dialogue tidied up. Friendship, lies, and questionable redemption. It provided great material about Stratton-Porter’s life as a naturalist and a writer.

I have read this story three times, each time enjoying it more. These people, caught in a bitter triangle, are presented with their faults as well as their virtues. The story touches upon the sentimental but escapes the mawkish. There is a completeness to the characters. Jimmy is a weakling, not a monster; I have known two men such as he. Danny's gallantry may be old-fashioned, a thing far removed from today's mores, but it enriches his character. And at the last, it speaks to us out of time, because we can see ourselves in each. You know, I just might read it again this summer.

The characters, Jim, Danny and Mary are what some would call "country bumpkins" but in Stratton-Porter's hands, they are brought to flesh and blood and one cares deeply about what will become of them.

I urge anyone who is looking for good literature with no vulgarity to acquaint yourself with this author.

What can I say about this wonderful Author that has not been said before. This wonderful woman has delighted me with her great stories. Of great heroes and heroines, people that you find have integrity and wonderful goodness. all her books have a special place in my library.

If you enjoy literature of the early 20th century which holds truths as well as entertainment, try a novel by Jean Stratton Porter. At the Foot of the Rainbow, offers a wholesome story of love, love lost, and the plight of life in the early 1900's. It's certainly worth the time to appreciate excellent penmanship and creativity from a woman far ahead of her time.

This story has some racist views. I had read it once as a teen-ager and could only remember part of it. I think I had picked out the parts I liked best - descriptions of the outdoors, the love story in it, etc - and forgotten the other parts I didn't like about it. I am pretty sure I will not be reading it again but will donate it to our city library for their annual sale.

I really enjoyed learning about how she came to write some of her books. She was an excellent writer, and it is almost as if you are there in the scenes with her. I have read several of her books and plan to read them all if possible.

Still not my favorite Porter book, but I like it a lot better than I did when I originally read it. Perhaps I'm more patient now. I don't know. :)
Liked the way Gene developed these characters. As dysfunctional as they all were,I couldn't help but like them. Great read about the tragedy & reconciliation of relationships. At times had bit of a problem with the vernacular. The plot definitely held my interest. Again a great read!
