Swamp Water, the first novel by a young native of south Georgia, was an immediate critical and financial success. The setting is the mysterious Okefenokee in southern Georgia-"the Swamp that pulled a man down and never let him go." Movie versions were made in 1941 (by Jean Renoir) and in 1951.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Swamp Water is, in a sense, melodrama--a fast, taut, somewhat lurid yarn. . . . Mr. Bell, however, knows his people and his background so thoroughly, writes with so much simplicity and directness and such a complete lack of sensationalism, that his story is lifted above the category of the merely thrilling and picturesque. Swamp Water, in fact, is not only a very good tale but very nearly a brilliant one.

--New York Times

This is the sort of American story Americans take to their bosoms, and with good reason.

--Times Literary Supplement
