About this item


About the Book

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?

Book Synopsis

Expanding the the classic American pioneer saga from the award-winning Little House series, this prequel follows Laura's great-grandmother, Martha. This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It's a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.

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 of a laird's daughter is not always easy for a lively girl like Martha. She would rather be running barefoot through the fields of heather than acting like a proper lady! But between lessons, Martha always finds time to play on the rolling Scottish hills.

From the Back Cover

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!
