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.
