Staff Reviews


Inspired by her grandmother’s stories of growing up in Wisconsin in the mid-nineteenth century, the book’s heroine is a spunky girl who prefers having adventures with her brothers to learning how to become a “lady.”  Readers who share a kinship with Little Women’s Jo March or thrilled to the exploits of Laura Ingalls Wilder will also enjoy reading about how Caddie gets into and out of scrapes.

 

— From Keith

Description


Caddie Woodlawn is a real adventurer. She'd rather hunt than sew and plow than bake, and tries to beat her brother's dares every chance she gets. Caddie is friends with Indians, who scare most of the neighbors -- neighbors who, like her mother and sisters, don't understand her at all.

Caddie is brave, and her story is special because it's based on the life and memories of Carol Ryrie Brink's grandmother, the real Caddie Woodlawn. Her spirit and sense of fun have made this book a classic that readers have taken to their hearts for more than seventy years.
