Little House in the Highlands tells about six-year-old Martha Morse, who would grow up to be Laura Ingalls Wilder's great-grandmother, while she's living in Scotland in 1788. Martha wants to be good and ladylike like her sister Grisie, but it's impossible for her to sit still during a spinning lesson when her brothers are outside playing on the rolling hills. And it's very hard for her to hold her tounge. Will Martha ever stop getting into trouble? Find out in this great book!
