She envied her older brother, Adam, who could take his rifle and tramp through the Kentucky mountains, exploring and hunting, while she had to stay home and cook and sew and scrub. Liza wanted to do everything that boys did--but she also wanted to please her father. And ever since her mothers death, Dan Mather had hoped that his daughter would provide the needed warmth and comfort of a womans touch in the family.When a violent feud erupted among the neighbors and tragedy struck the Hundredfold, Liza proved that she could think and act as quickly as any boy. And, to her surprise, she also showed a womans firmness and sympathy--saving the situation and winning the respect of all her family.
