It's hard enough for a nine-year-old girl to take care of herself, her little brother, and a family friend's farm for two days. Then a prairie fire breaks out, and nothing will stop it. Addie remembers her father's advice - go where there's nothing to burn. So Addie takes her brother and heads for the well. What a spot to be in!
