Summary

  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!
