Summary

Newbery Medal Winner, 1936

No one would accuse 11-year-old Caddie Woodlawn of being dainty and ladylike. In spite of her mother’s best efforts, Caddie is as wild as the wind, playing freely and rambunctiously with her two brothers in the Wisconsin backwoods. There are rafts to build and trees to climb and pranks to play. Caddie especially likes to watch her friend Indian John build birchbark canoes at the river. 

Every day seems wide with possibility - as wide as the frontier. But living on the edge of civilization has its risks, too. And when Indians threaten to attack the settlers, it is Caddie’s resourcefulness and bravery that save the day. 

The author, Carol Ryrie Brink - granddaughter of the real Caddie Woodlawn - based her book on the true stories her grandmother used to tell her about growing up on the frontier.

scratchy reader

Wonderful story but this lady's voice is scratchy and grating to listen to. We wish they'd rerecord it with someone else reading.

Great story for boys and girls alike

If you enjoy the Little House series, you will love this book too! What makes this book special is Caddie's dad. He sees her for who she is and doesn't try to change her, but embraces her.

A good review

I liked the story very much tho there where parts of it that I found less interesting. The reader is quite good and at the beginning it seems it's not good but now I can't imagine Caddie or Tom speaking another way. I recommend this book to all children from the age of 8 and adults who like the early industrial revolution in America like me.

prefer Anne of Green Gables

similar feel to Anne of Green Gables, but would choose that first. Well read, but story quite drawn out.
