About this item
Elsie Mae is ready to take a stand.
When you have six older siblings, it's pretty hard to stand out. But that's not going to stop Elsie Mae from trying. So when she finds out that her community's beloved Okefenokee Swamp is being threatened by a shipping company, Elsie Mae writes a letter to President Roosevelt. She's pretty confident it will save the swamp and make her a hometown hero. Then, Elsie Mae gets word of some hog bandits stealing from swamper families, and she sees an opportunity to make her family proud while waiting to hear back from the White House.
But when her cousin Henry James shows up and just about ruins her investigation, Elsie Mae will learn the hard way what it really means to be a hero.
