Synopsis: It is the Great Depression, and twelve-year-old Artie Wilson is tired of being poor and wondering where her family's next decent meal will come from. She doesn't understand why her mother doesn't push her father to better provide for their family. Artie is determined to escape plowing and planting the fields and milking the cow on her family's farm, and longs to leave Buck Creek, Kentucky and her life of poverty. She is committed not to be poor when she grows up, and vows that for her, poor is just a starting place.
