Six-year-old Martha wants to be as good as her big sister, Grisie, who is quiet and ladylike and well behaved. But its so hard for Martha to sit still for a spinning lesson when her brothers are playing Picts and Scots on the rolling Scottish hills. And its just impossible for her to hold her tongue at the dinner table when the grownups are telling stories about green-haired fairies and other Wee Folk. Will Martha ever stop getting herself into scrapes? Discover the childhood adventures of the spirited little Scottish girl who became Laura Ingalls Wilders great-grandmother. The Little House saga continues!
