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

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 is a wonderful story of frontier america from a young girl's point of view. My son, however really liked this book because there is enough action (and interaction)involving native americans, and parent/sibling issues.
