Lizzie Tacketts young life is off to a rocky start. By the end of the bone-chilling winter of 1901, the seven-year-old has lost her Pa and Ma and her Arkansas sharecropper family home. Separated by an uncaring judge from her older sister and brothers, Lizzie goes to live with a kind neighbor instead of her cruel, court-appointed guardians. When she finds her foster mother murdered, Lizzie flees into the mountains rather than risk meeting up with the killer.By happy chance, Lizzie stumbles upon the remote cabin of rockhound and moonshiner Billy Bean and his wife Maud.

The couple takes the frightened girl into their home and hearts. When Billy discovers Lizzies incredibly accurate rock-throwing arm, he teaches her how to pitch washers, a game traditionally reserved for men.Lizzies happiness is shattered when Billy is wrongly accused of murder and sent to prison. Orphaned a second time, Lizzie hops a westbound train to search for her scattered siblings in the Indian Territory.

There in the land that will one day become the state of Oklahoma, she discovers her own Native American heritage. There also she picks up the trail of a cold-blooded killer, and finds that her skill at washer-pitching may save not only her own life but that of her beloved Uncle Billy.
