"She ain't allers a stayin' in the squatter country nuther," he pursued. "She takes that damn ugly cat of her'n and scoots away for a time. And none of 'em up there don't know where she goes. Hones' Injun, don't she never come about this here scow, Lem?"

To revenge his dead wife Lon kidnaps the 1-year old twins (a boy "flukey" and a girl "flea") of the man he feels is responsible for her death. He plans to make them bad by forcing flukey into his trade of a thief and giving flea to his friend Lem on her fifteenth birthday to be his "woman". The twins have diffrent plans so they run away bringing them to new friends and love for flea and reuniting them with their parents. There's lots more to this story but I don't want to give it all away, just know that it's a great read and very sweet.
