Elsie Mae Has Something to Say by Nancy J. Cavanaugh
Elsie Mae loves spending the summers with her grandparents in the Okefenokee Swamp. When she hears that a company wants to build a canal through the swamp and ruin the swamp, Elsie Mae writes a letter to president Franklin Roosevelt asking him to save the swamp. She has many adventures this summer at the swamp with several unexpected surprises. There are hog thieves, dogs, gators and boats and her son of a preacher cousin, Henry James. Can they catch the hog thieves and save the swamp? This is a fabulously fun to read middle grade historical fiction book that I highly recommend!
