The book recounts the authors actual adventures as a young girl with her friend Melba, a member of the Washoe Tribe. The two spent long summer days in the early 1960s exploring the foothills of the Sierra Nevada near Genoa, Nevada. Their curiosity and independent spirit in the sparsely populated area made them feel like they were queens of the mountain.
