Caddie Woodlawn is a real adventurer. She'd rather hunt than sew, plow than bake, and beats her brothers' dares every chance she gets. Caddie is friends with the 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.
