Meet the first Little House girl--Laura Ingalls Wilder's great-grandmother! Written in the classic style of Wilder's beloved books, this charming story traces the adventures of mischievous Martha Morse, as she grows up in the rolling Scottish hills of the 1780s.
It's 1788, and six-year-old Martha lives in a little stone house in Glencaraid, Scotland. Martha's father is Laird Glencaraid, and the life a laird's daughter is not always easy for a lively girl like Martha. She would rather be running barefoot through fields of heather and listening to magical tales of fairies and other Wee Folk than learning to sew like a proper young lady. But between her dreaded sewing lessons, Martha still finds time to play on the rolling Scottish hills. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
