This story is about a young woman's search for love and all the disappointments that it possessed for her, all within an eight year period of time, both with and without the captainship of her husband. Janet believed in women's rights, even before anyone understood its concept. She lived in the time period of the old English common law, which permitted the Rule of Thumb, that allowed a man to beat his wife with a switch, no thicker than his own thumb. Naturally she didn't believe in any of this nonsense, so she put on her old buckskins and set out to find her own destiny.By dressing as a man she possessed what she required the most, total freedom!
