Long before environmental consciousness became popular, a young nature writer named Opal Whitely captured America's heart. Opal's childhood diary, published in 1902, became an immediate bestseller, one of the most talked-about books of its time. Wistful, funny, and wise, it was described by an admirer as "the revelation of the ... life of a feminine Peter Pan of the Oregon wilderness -- so innocent, so intimate, so haunting, that I should not know where in all literature to look for a counterpart". But the diary soon fell into disgrace. Condemning it as an adult-written hoax, skeptics stirred a scandal that drove the book into obscurity and shattered the frail spirit of its author. Discovering the diary by chance, bestselling author Benjamin Hoff set out to solve the longstanding mystery of its origin. His biography of Opal that accompanies the diary provides fascinating proof that the document is indeed authentic -- the work of a magically gifted child, America's forgotten interpreter of nature

"At the turn of the century, Opal grew up literally barefoot and dirt poor in Oregon's logging camps. From an early age she stood out. She seemed to be a child prodigy with an encyclopedic knowledge of nature. She collected and labeled thousands of specimens of plants and insects, and as a young teenager gave lectures to her classmates and the community. By the time she was seventeen years old, she had gained national attention and she was touring the state as a religious leader. But it was a childhood diary that gained her international fame. As a young woman she published a diary she said she had written when she was about 6-years old. In it, she described the lumber camps as a child's fairyland. The diary quickly became a best seller." --
