Working on completing her ecology graduate degree, Bernice is doing invasive species research in Cleary Swamp when she is confronted by a mysterious hag who says she is the swamp’s caretaker. When Bernice discovers that the hag is actually a woman named Rebecca Hallett who disappeared in the swamp decades before she attempts to remove the strange old woman from Cleary Swamp, but little does Bernice know that Rebecca has a mystical bond to the area – one that possesses a human host and bonds them to it. One magical hallucinogenic powder cocktail and a space opera spirit journey later, Bernice’s life has changed forever. The swamp wants her for its new caretaker, and it won’t take no for an answer.

This is my playlist for Come Back to the Swamp. All these songs are either about swamps or have a very “swampy” feel to them.
- All the songs on the album Locked Down – Dr. John. Probably any Dr. John album would be good for a Come Back to the Swamp soundtrack. He’s got a very swampy vibe.
- Lynyrd Skynyrd – Swamp Music
- Charlie Daniels – The Legend of Wooley Swamp
- Josephine of the Swamps – Grant Lee Phillips
- Out in the Woods – Leon Russell
- Swamp Witch – Jim Stafford
- Hungry Planet – The Byrds
- Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth – Sparks
