"In 1864 Caddie Woodlawn was eleven, and as wild a little tomboy as ever ran the woods of western Wisconsin. She was the despair of her mother and of her elder sister Clara. But her father watched her with a little shine of pride in his eyes, and her brothers accepted her as one of themselves without a question."

So begins an exciting story about a girl who would rather hunt than sew, rather plow than bake. This prize-winning book tells of the escapades of Caddie and her six brothers and sisters, af a schoolhouse fire, of pranks played on a city slicker cousin, of an amazing discovery in an old trunk. And when the Indians threaten to massacre the settlers it is Caddie's courage and quick thinking that save her family and their neighbors.

This is the story of Caddie Woodhouse written by her granddaughter, Carol Ryrie Brink. It is a collection of stories that Caddie told of her life growing up as a pioneer just south of Menomonie, Wisconsin. I enjoyed this book even more than the Little House series of Laura Ingalls Wilder's life.

This book was one of my favorites from childhood. I read it to my children who loved Caddie's adventures as much as I did.

Caddie Woodlawn - a young girl who lives in the 'west' (Wisconsin) in 1864 - her life, her family and adventures (including with her dog, and her Indian friend). Caddie is definitely a "tomboy" in an age when that could be frowned upon. Her father encourages her in it, but as she grows up, he also encourages her that it's O.K. to be a woman and do women's things as well.

This is a charming book I've read over and over. A great story for children of all ages.

My nine year old daugther loved Caddie Woodlawn and read this book in a few days. She especially liked how Caddie was brave and daring. When she discovered it was about a real person, she was even more in awe.
