Descrição

Elsie Mae has long treasured summers with her grandparents in the Okefenokee Swamp, so she is devastated to hear that a shipping company plans to build a canal right through it. What will that mean for the people and animals that call the swamp home? So she writes a letter directly to President Franklin Roosevelt himself and sets off to enjoy what may be her last happy summer there with her new dog, Huck. But when she arrives, she discovers a team of hog bandits who have been stealing from the swamper families. When her cousin Henry James, who dreams of one day becoming a traveling preacher like his daddy, shows up, Elsie doesn't think things could get worse. But then she devises a plan to use Henry and his "Hallelujahs" to help stop the thieves-and maybe make just enough noise to gain Roosevelt's attention...

  • (3/5)

    It is 1933 and Elsie Mae is hoping that what she has to say will make her a hero and bring her some notoriety. Everything she thinks and does is in that pursuit because she is sure that only then will she finally be noticed by her family.

    Elsie is a girl who loves and respects the Okefenokee Swamp, and her grandparents and uncles who call it home. The descriptions of life in The Swamp are pure magic and if you close your eyes you can see and hear the sounds and calls inherent in nature. She wants to save this magical place where she has spent the past six summers from the bulldozers which are threatening the way of life who inhabit the Swamp.

    While the book is definitely written for a young audience it should not be overlooked by adults. There are so many important messages and moral attributes that are seamlessly woven into the story. It was a fun, humorous and interesting read.
