After rejecting the easy path to her dream of owning her own farm, she suffers through a bad marriage but ultimately acquires her land and achieves happiness.

Mrs. Gene Stratton-Porter has carried out this idea and really unearthed a "Crock of Gold" for the lover of the beautiful in fiction. It is a charming tale of the two greatest things in the world, Love and Friendship, with delicate pen pictures of "God's Country" interwoven. The touch of nature that makes the whole world kin was never better exemplified than in this story of Dannie, Jimmy and Mary, who lived and loved by the banks of the Wabash. A book to be thankful for and to remember all one's life.

A Gripping Romance in a Natural Setting “To my way of thinking and working, the greatest service a piece of fiction can do any reader is to leave him with a higher ideal of life than he had when he began. If in one small degree it shows him where he can be...gentler, saner, cleaner, kindlier...it is a wonder-working book. If it opens his eyes to one beauty in nature he never saw for himself and leads him one step toward the God of the Universe, it is a beneficial book...” ― Gene Stratton-Porter In Gene Stratton-Porter's novel, The Harvester, a noble and kind man harvests wild plants for medicines. When meets the woman of his dreams, he pursues her with all his heart. This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents.
