What are squatter's rights?

Question Details:

My husband has been taking care of the property next to us for about 12-15 years, mowing, trimming, cutting of bad trees, etc. The property belongs to his mother; she refuses to sell to him. However, she will sell to his other siblings. He is the only one that was adopted out of the 4. Does he have any rights? I have found a law, "Squatter's Rights Law". Is that in effect here in KY? And if so, would it be worth to pursue?
