2: Mary Call Luthur leads a fine and happy life. She lives with her father, Roy Luthur, her younger brother, Romey Luthur, her even younger sister, Ima Dean Luthur, and finally, her older sister, Devola Luthur. "Oh, Devola, you need to stop starring at that nasty man, Kiser Pease. You know Roy Luthur is never gonna let you marry him. Kiser is nothing but a rotten old nasty cheat. Just look at what debt he put Roy in!" "Maybe he wouldn't be in this debt if I could marry Kiser and get him to drop old Luthur's debt."
3: " Stop dreaming and get over it. The Luthur's ain't gonna have a member of there family marry a nasty cheat like that old rotten pig Kiser Pease." " His kitchen is yellow, I just adore yellow! Oh, I would love to live in his home!" "That man is making poor Roy Luthur work this land, and Roy don't get any of the money! That's why where out here picking this witch hazel leaves, it our only money resource! Now get back to work, so we can go too town soon." Devola and Mary Call continued on picking the witch hazel leaves.
6: "Come on, Romey," Mary Call said aloud. "Where going up to Old Joshua, me and Devola hit Sugar Boy earlier today." Sugar Boy and Old Joshua are mountains, and the Luthur's live a little valley in between them that goes by the name of Trial. "I'm coming!" Romey said, pulling out his wagon. The sibillings headed twoard Old Joshua. "Wait, isn't Kiser supposed to have his lights on, he dosen't usually go to sleep befor now." They walked into Kiser's home. "Kiser? Where are you? Kiser?"
7: "Down here!" ... "Down here!" "I think it's Kiser." Mary Call insited this, as they starred at a dark figure on th ground. Romey went and got Ima Dean and Devola from the house. They nursed Kiser back to health. In exchange, Kiser gave 20 acres of land and the Luthur house, free of charge. They where finally free! Or so they thought.
10: Roy Luthur feel ill. He had dug a grave for when he dies, so th Luthurs don't have to worry about that. "We are prepared for the worst. We are going to be wildcrafters. Ima Dean go get the wildcrafting book in the book chest." Mary Call said seriously.
11: Little Ima Dean scurried off twoard the chest of books they had. She brought back a book that was filled with valuable information to all wildcrafters. " We need to study all of this plants and find out what there worth, to sell to Mr.Conell. the general store owner.

15: This is what Romey heard from Mary Call in the kitchen during breakfast. Only he knows about this. Devola and Ima Dean don't. This was a sad day for Mary Call andRomey, who both know.
18: It is time to bury Roy Luthur. Romey and Mary Call go to his grave and bury him. No priest, no undertaker, , just him, the 2 kids, and nature, beautiful nature.
19: "What?" Devola exclaimend. "I said," Mary Call begain. "I heard you the first time!" Ima Dean was crying o the couch. They where just told about the horrible loss.

42: Goldie Pease comes along. "This is my land, not Kiser's. You are still in debt." Goldie foces them to vacate in 2 weeks. but Mary Call has a plan. She would purpose to Kiser. They would marry and after he pays off the house, she would bid him fairwell.
43: Mary Call tries her plan, she fails. She perposed, he refused. They where domed. She continues normal life, as winter hits, fast and furious. She searches for a new home. She is sure that all the Luthurs hard work was gone. She was sure that they where doomed.
