Samuel meets Anne Marie Pennysworth Clark. He was looking for food and he found her barn.There were many chickens in the back yard. So he sneaks into the back yard to steal one. But when he went to do this Annie noticed him. She came out to speak to him. Samuel was suprised when he found out she was actually going to welcome him and allow him to take one. On pages 74-77 the book states " . . . when he came upon the farm. it had not been attacked and burned. . . this was a proper farm . . . he could see chickens in the yard . . . chicken would taste good. the thought of roasted chicken made him salivate. Second, if they hadn't been attacked it must mean they were friendly to the raiders . . . Just as he started to make his move, he heard a scraping sound overhead and a barn loft door opened. A little girl eight or nine was looking down at him."

when annie and Samuel first met Abner they thought he was dangerous. On page 97 the book the states " How's your day? . . . I'm Abner McDougal, tinker at large."
