Editorial Reviews


"Cavanagh's sweet and engaging historical fiction style perfectly captures the special quality of life in the Okefenokee, from 'gators to biscuits to good neighbors. Elsie Mae is a strong, complicated heroine, surrounded by complex characters. The novel also does a good job highlighting the complications of federal conservation for those who live in and use a wild place." - School Library Journal

"The period details, unusual setting, light dialect, well developed characters, and the affirming, gradual progression of Elsie Mae and Henry James' friendship makes for an engrossing story. An author's note offers more insight into the real story of FDR's protection of the swamp." - Booklist

"Cavanaugh weaves an engaging story with characters you immediately fall in love with. The text offers a poignant window into the customs and lifestyle of the swampers who lived there in the 1930s. Written with humor and sensitivity and reflecting the vernacular of the time, this book would be a great intro to a lesson on the National Wildlife Refuge system, conservation, and preservation.
" - School Library Connection

"Our spunky protagonist takes the reader on countless high-energy adventures through the marsh and eventually learns that there are more important matters than heroism. Set in 1933, this piece of historical fiction gives a perspective of life on the Okefenokee, and the author's note provides context for the real-life events like President Roosevelt's Executive Order that lead to its National Wildlife Refuge status." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Gators, huckleberry pie, and sweet tea on the porch are all part of the swamper way of life. Elsie Mae is spunky, headstrong, and kind... Swamp magic." - Kirkus
