Synopses & Reviews
Six-year-old Martha (great-grandmother of Laura Ingalls Wilder) wants to be ladylike, but it's impossible when her brothers are playing Picts and Scots on the rolling Scottish hills. Will she ever stop getting herself into scrapes?
It's 1788 and Martha lives in a little stone house in Glencaraid, Scotland. Her father is Laird Glencaraid, which means Martha must behave like a young lady even when she would much rather run around the Scottish hillside!
