Caddie Woodlawn is a real adventurer. She’d rather hunt than sew, plow than bake, and beat her brothers’ 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 true 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 over fifty years.
