Two Mohawk sisters, Mattie and Sarah, are taken away to a boarding school because they are told it is what would be best for them. Together, they endure great hardships and punishment at their new boarding school. They have teachers that they like and those that they don’t. They work and do chores. Sometimes they eat, they sleep, and they march everywhere. The headmistress, Mrs.’s Dwyer seems to be out to get them for anything and everything.
