Story Summary

Gobban-na-Saor the builder must get over the mountains to build a castle for the King of France. Though he wishes he had seven fine sons to help him over the mountains, he has only his little daughter, Deeshy. With the good advice of her mother, Deeshy proves she is better than seven sons, for a good story shortens a journey better than anything.
