Caddie Woodlawn is a peppy, red-headed pioneer girl who is barely out of one scrape before she is into another! She has trouble being a "lady", and prefers the wild woods and her brothers' company. Caddie's adventures provide an exciting and authentic picture of life on the Wisconsin frontier in the 1860s, a very different time than we live in; but growing up is not so very different today. A Newbery Award book. Paperback, 288 pages, for ages 9-12 years.
