Synopsis: This play won the 1997 Bonderman/IUPI National Youth Playwriting Competition. Set in the hills of Appalachia in the mid-Nineteen Thirties, it moves among various mountain settings nearby. Period costumes. Five children may appear in the cast of 6 male and 5 female roles. Doubling possible. Open stage. Premiered in Lexington Kentucky and New York University.

Liza Tucker was born different. She can't talk but she has an extraordinary ability to solve riddles. Misunderstood by her mother and her neighbors, she lives a reclusive life at the family homeplace. But after her father fails to return home following a flood, it is Liza who solves the mystery of his disappearance. In this heart-warming Appalachian adventure, Liza and her brother Jacob, match wits with a pair of mischievous ghosts in a magical cave deep within mysterious Ice Mountain. At the end Liza wins acceptance, while her mother gains a new understanding of the "kind of magic that holds a family together."
