    1. Please don t let my wife read this book I would never hear the end of it The reader should remember that David Langston, Porter s Harvester, was, after all, only a fictional character He never really existed Having said that, I was mesmerized by the sweep, intensity and energy of this book I don t think I ve ever read a moving love story, albeit one sided Porter s premise, her style, her profuse imagery were unique At times, the narrative and commentary were slow paced I kept saying to myself, [...]

    2. My husband thought we should read this book at the same time His mother read it to him in his youth, and he thought it helped shape his view of how women should be treated.I loved this book The Harvester is such a wonderful character, an ideal man He is noble, caring, patient, smart I could go on This is a wonderful love story It is passionate while still appropriate The characters are quirky and endearing The story is captivating I love the messages of good moral values, forgiveness, and hard [...]

    3. This is a beautiful love story with passion and desire with out the lust A great commentary on how love is deepened with clean living and heartfelt service Move over Mr Darcy, David Langston is a man with strength, honesty, and straightforwardness not to be placed before tenderness, gentleness and kindness One of my favorite quotes Never can you be truly happy, Ruth, until you have forgiven them The only way on earth to cure pain is through forgiveness That, and that only, will ease it all away, [...]

    4. I adore this Limberlost book It is different from the other two Limberlost books in many ways but it s so very ethereal and beautiful Where was this book when I was 14 years old I needed this book back then I ll tell you where it was probably out of print I read the GSP books that I could get my hands on when I was that age and I never came across this one Thank goodness for this electronic age that we live in that is bringing these old gems back to life

    5. I read this because it was selected as the quarterly classic group read in one of the groups I m in The story is about a man, David Langston who is the harvester He harvests wild plants for medicines He lives a simple life with his dog and his plants One day he has this dream of a woman and knows she is the one for him Later he sees her in town but was unable to get to her He then looks for her and eventually he does find her Her name is Ruth Jameson and she just arrived in the area and lived wi [...]

    6. Three and a half stars This book started out slow and was a hard for me to get into at first but the story definitely picked up in the second half of the book I had a hard time placing the setting and time period so it was an unsettling read At first I was a little worried about the main character s motivations and ideas about love The love story seemed a too idealized, which can still make for a good story but the author sets the book up to be so much than an overly romantic love story David e [...]

    7. Up to this point I ve only read the Big Three of this author s books, though I ve enjoyed them for years The advent of free cheap collections of older works on e book has made it possible to try , and for my first foray deeper into her collection I chose Harvester What an inspired choice It turned out to be a wonderful old fashioned love story I only wish I d read it years ago About the first half of this story deals with David, a man who makes his living gathering the wild barks, roots, leaves [...]

    8. David Langston is The Harvester Content to live a simple life with his dog and the thought of complicating it with a woman brings on a panic attack Until The vision of her changed his life David didn t know her name or even where she was but he knew that she would be his wife and started preparing for her arrival by building her a home The harvester grows, tends and cultivates trees, plants, herbs, edible and medicinal fungi The author displays a cornucopia of colors, smells and textures while d [...]

    9. I thought Laddie would always be my favorite Gene Stratton Porter bookI was wrong I picked up a worn, weather beaten copy of the Harvester which was published in 1911 It belonged to my husbands grandmother and I have wanted to read it for years, but feared I would ruin it Yesterday, I gently picked it up and began to try the waters I put it down twice once to sleep and the next when I had finished it It is the most enchanting, inspiring story of love and life that I have yet encountered Though t [...]

    10. David Langston lives alone in the Medicine Woods, where he cultivates and harvests plants used for medicines and sells them to doctors and drug companies His neighbors call him lazy because he hasn t drained his lake and planted corn really he is hard working and well versed in the ways of the woods Each spring with the coming of the first bluebird, he asks his faithful dog whether he should continue with his present occupation or seek his fortune in the city, and the dog always advises him to s [...]

    11. The self summary says it all Pristine , Idyllic bliss , alluring , pure, unspoiled Gene Stratton Porter is the master of Utopia Definitely not for the romantically challenged or faint of heart for Ms Porter is also the master of emotional swooning enough so to cause a pleasant roll of the eyes until she captures you in the story, as she undoubtedly will, and the eye rolling stops and you willingly go along for the ride among perfect people and places much enticing than any prince charming or ca [...]

    14. Could be that I especially loved this book after just having finished The Outlander It was such a beautiful expression of He loved us first I loved the description of the reason we need to forgive on p 320, The only way on earth to cure the pain is through forgiveness That, and that only, will ease it all away, and leave you happy and free for life and love So long as you let this rancour eat in your heart, you are not, and never can be, normal You must forgive them Then your heart will be at re [...]

    15. I really liked the characters in this book very life like and realistic The Harvester, David Langston, was hardworking, resourceful, and caring It was interesting to read about how he cultivated his herbs on his land and sold them to doctors and druggists He was quite successful in making a living through it I liked Ruth too so nice she got to have such a good life after some hardships she faces earlier Granny Moreland was hilarious, I thought There were references to evolution now and then and [...]

    16. Another lovely story from Mrs Stratton Porter This one has the same landscape and trademark story telling of Freckles and Girl of the Limberlost but has an entirely different feel Unlike the coming of age and journey to happiness through self reliance that we see in the first two Limberlost books, this one of a grown up romance Innocent and lovely and inspiring but less instructive and gritty and compelling I enjoyed this book very much for its beautiful prose and lovely descriptions The charac [...]

    17. There are a lot of sweet moments here The Harvester gives a great case for the importance of virtue and why it is worthwhile I enjoyed the book but don t think it is her best I would start with Girl of the Limberlost if you are a beginning Gene Stratton Porter fan You realize she is the bird woman right As much as I wanted to I just couldn t fall in love with the Harvester He is a bit of a control freak and has exact ideas of how a sweetheart should be I felt like he was too controlling with her [...]

    18. Love how Gene Stratton Porter writes, so was excited to read The Harvester It s a sweet love story, of how the Harvester woos his Dream Girl, and as always, the beautiful world is described in vivid detail by Mrs Porter s pen It moved a little slowly at the beginning and I didn t care for some of the beliefs portrayed in it specifically concerning nature and death , which is why it s not a favorite, but still a good, sweet read I prefer A Girl of the Limberlost and A Daughter of the Land over Th [...]

    19. 3.5 stars It was slow at first, but picked up near the middle As always loved the author s description of nature, and the medicine man s work with medicinal herbs There are so many wonderful sayings and thoughtful gems throughout Gene Stratton porter s novel David Langston, the harvester is a wonderful man, but just a little too perfect This novel was published in the 1911, so it s a bit flowery and syrupy, but still worth reading The love story made me cry.

    20. Quentin the psychic was emphatic that I needed to read this so I would recognize my soul mate when he came along It s taken me months to get into it I put it down for a loooong time , but I m looking forward to reading it tonight That s good, right

    21. I love to read Gene Stratton Porter books because they are packed with good morals and standards that have been long buried and forgotten in society today It is a wonderful refreshment to read about these strengths of character that she incorporates into her stories that existed long ago.

    22. This isn t my favorite Gene Stratton Porter book, but it is right up there The last third of the book is especially enjoyable, she ties up the story with some life lessons very well However, Girl of the Limberlost is still the best

    23. This is a delightful story, almost like a fairy tale I loved the simple language and felt I could see the cabin,woods, and the herbs Thank you Melinda, for loaning it to me.

    24. If you are not interested in nature, steer clear away from this book unless you are willing to be converted to the ways of the woods As a person who thoroughly enjoys reading about all things in nature, I found this to be immensely entertaining I enjoyed reading the one sided dialogue of the main character, David Langston, and I was glad to revisit the woods of A Girl of the Limberlost, as well as the writing of Gene Stratton Porter.This is an extremely sentimental book I was in the mood for thi [...]

    25. If I could have, I d give it 3.5 stars I enjoyed this book Gene Stratton Porter is a talented writer she s so descriptive and her settings are always so beautiful I learn so much about nature and wildlife when I read her books Almost every time she s telling about the scenery I m Googling the names of the flowers and birds so I can picture what she s talking about I also love that Gene Stratton Porter always has such honorable and wholesome characters While I loved the characters in this book an [...]

    26. David Langston is The Harvester, a man who lives out in the woods with minor contact with civilization Who needs human companionship when you have animals and plants to talk to Then one day David up and decides to get married He just goes ahead and starts building a new house and decorating it, with the wife kind of being a last minute detail Did you ever see that Andy Griffith episode where the farmer came to town to pick out a wife and expected the task to take one afternoon to get done It s a [...]

    27. One of my favorite authors She has a way of telling stories of people that look for the good, defeat the odds, do their best, succeed in ways they didn t see coming And this book follows the same path Not to mention the sweetness tucked into her pages
