A Girl of the Limberlost, a novel by American writer and naturalist Gene Stratton-Porter. It is considered a classic of Indiana literature. It is the sequel to her earlier novel Freckles.

(The swamp and forestland eventually ceased to exist, though projects since the 1990s have begun to restore a small part of it.)
