Betsy Johnson was only eight years old when she traveled with her family to reach the rugged, untamed Kentucky frontier. The Johnson family found a home at a place called Bryan Station, a remote fort in the dense Kentucky forest. She worked with her family to plant crops, make clothing, and care for her younger brothers and sisters. It was a hard life, but a good life. Betsy loved her home in Kentucky. Every day was an adventure. Then, in the summer of 1782, the American Revolutionary War found its way to this isolated fort. Over five hundred Indians, led by British officers, surrounded Bryan Station and prepared to attack the settlers there. A Bucket Full of Courage tells about the incredible spirit and bravery of this little girl and the other heroes of Bryan Station who stood against the attack.
