By: Brink, Carol Ryrie, 1895-1981.
Material type: TextTextPublisher: New York : Macmillan Co., 1935Subject(s): Frontier and pioneer life -- Wisconsin -- Juvenile fiction | Brothers and sisters -- Juvenile fiction | Wisconsin -- Juvenile fictionAdditional physical formats: Online version:: Caddie Woodlawn.DDC classification: 813 LOC classification: PS3503.R5614 | C2 1935PZ7.B78 | CadAwards: Newbery Medal, 1936.Summary: At age 11, Caddie Woodlawn is the despair of her mother and the pride of her father: a clock-fixing tomboy running wild in the woods of Wisconsin. In 1864, this is a bit much for her Boston-bred mother to bear, but Caddie and her brothers are happy with the status quo. Written in 1935 about Carol Ryrie Brink's grandmother's childhood, the adventures of Caddie and her brothers are still exciting over 60 years later. With each chapter comes another ever-more exciting adventure: a midnight gallop on her horse across a frozen river to warn her American Indian friends of the white men's plan to attack; a prairie fire approaching the school house; and a letter from England that may change the family's life forever. This Newbery Medal-winning book bursts at the seams with Caddie's irrepressible spirit. In spite of her mother's misgivings, Caddie is a perfect role model for any girl--or boy, for that matter. She's big-hearted, she's brave, and she's mechanically inclined!
