Adventures on the Frontier

by Tarissa on Jan 22, 2013

This story takes place in 1864, on the Wisconsin frontier. The book follows the adventures of a certain girl, named Caddie Woodlawn. She is a tomboy, who likes to run around wildly with her two brothers, rather than staying inside and doing the tasks that are expected of her, like sewing, knitting, and cooking, with her mother and her older sister, Clara. Living in territory where Indians are nearby, excitement is always brewing. There are fish to catch, rafts to paddle, fields to plow, and school lessons to learn. Caddie's adventures were loosely based on the author's own grandmother. I think that makes the book interesting, to know that some of the events actually happened, and that the characters were based on real people. I recommend this book for either boys or girls. I think it was quite a fun read, and good for any age.

A childhood favorite with good reason

by Bandura on May 20, 2007

Caddie Woodlawn comes to life in the pages of this beautifully written book by Carol Ryrie Brink. Whether you are reading this book to your 6-10 year old, or giving this to a child between 6-12, know that this will become a dog-eared favorite, read countless times. Caddie is a tomboy growing up in the wilderness of Wisconsin. She is befriended by an Indian chief, is part of an inseparable trio with two equally charming and wild brothers, and is part of a well-run, large, and loving familiy. The lessons to be learned from this book are legion. The author paints in equal detail and color the historical setting of the piece as well as the workings of a frontier farm family. There are fine role models in many of the adults as well as inspiring actions by the children. My kids would listen to this book a thousand times over and it's possible that they'd rank it first before their also-beloved series about Laura Ingalls Wilder. Enjoy!
