Meet Martha Morse, the little girl who would grow up to be Laura Ingalls Wilder's great-grandmother.
Seven-year-old Martha is lonely and restless. The Stone House was filled with people during the holidays, but now the cousins have gone home, Martha's father is travelling, her brothers are at school, and her sister, Grisie, is too busy brooding over her embroidery to pay attention to Martha. Then Father comes home with some thrilling news - and suddenly Martha's house is bustling with excitement!
