In the early 1900s, young farm boys would often come calling upon and courting the farm girls. Sometimes the girls were especially enamored by the young man's attentions. But sometimes, the young ladies of the fellow's dreams did not share his feelings. Such is the story of the sisters in The Farm Girls' Revenge, who dreamed up various ways to discourage their attentive neighbor boys.
Gertrude and Mary lived in Kansas in the early 1900s. Being the attractive young women they were, they often attracted the attention of the local farm boys, though some of these boys were less than desirable. Author Roberta Seiwert Lampe presents the story of how Gertrude and Mary, on more than one occasion, introduce these boys to The Farm Girls' Revenge. From driving their wagon into the farm pond to covering their seats in molasses, these girls always have the upper hand.
