During the Civil War in western Missouri, Hannah and her three small daughters are moved as military prisoners to a detention camp because they did not obey Order # 11. The order demanded everyone in four counties along the Kansas border evacuate within fifteen days.

With ingenuity and bravery, Hannah and the girls escape and return to their prairie home. Based on historic facts and records, the story tells how the four of them evade the former Redleg Kansas Union captain, outwit the Bushwhackers who take over the deserted, burnt area, and, with the help of an Osage scout, find Hannah's severely wounded, Union army husband and secretly bring him home.
