It is 1908 in rural Indiana. Elnora Comstock is determined to attend high
school, even though her widowed mother Kate calls her goal a "foolish

free-spirited naturalist who fascinates the young girl. But when the taxes
on the farm come due, Elnora must choose between her own dreams of a better
life and her mother's demand that she quit school to help with the harvest.
