Caddie is friends with Indians, who scare most of the neighbors-neighbors who, like her mother and sisters, don’t understand her at all. Her spirit and sense of fun have made this book a classic that readers have taken to their hearts for more than seventy years

Brink, Carol Ryrie, 1895-1981. Nearly ten years have gone by since the first Caddie Woodlawn book appeared, and the girls and boys who were Caddie’s first readers have now grown far beyond her. But letters continue to come from new readers

Producer, Richard John David; director, Giles Walker; teleplay by Joe Wiesenfeld and Richard John David. Based on the book of the same title by Carol Ryrie Brink. The story of high spirited Caddie Woodlawn, a frontier girl who would rather go adventuring with her brothers than learn to cook and sew. She makes peace between the Indians and the settlers in frontier Wisconsin during the Civil War.

The old lord was not likely to forgive her after his son was dead, and the shoemaker was as annoyed with his daughter for marrying out of her class as the old lord was himself.

The old lord was not likely to forgive her after his son was dead, and the shoemaker was as annoyed with his daughter for marrying out of her class as the old lord was himself her own amount of pride. In those days the worst vice in England was pride, I guess-the worst vice of all, because folks thought it was a virtue. But, Father, what about the clogs and breeches? asked Caddie. Have patience, said Mrs. Woodlawn. He’ll get to them presently. My mother earned what she could as a seamstress. But that was not enough.

Have you read Caddie Woodlawn? How do you feel it compares to the the Little House books?

However, despite the similar settings and the eras in which both the Little House and Caddie stories take place, Caddie Woodlawn does not feel as polished and realistic as the others. I can only recommend it mildly, and I don’t believe my son will enjoy it as much. It simply is not as good: something vital is missing in Caddie’s story. Have you read Caddie Woodlawn? How do you feel it compares to the the Little House books?

Chronicles the adventures of eleven-year-old Caddie growing up with her six brothers and sisters on the Wisconsin frontier in the mid-nineteenth century.
  • Oh, I loved this book! I am 64 years old and have in the past year been re-reading books I enjoyed as a young girl, as well as some that I missed reading, like Caddie Woodlawn. Revisting some of these books and discovering others have helped me to reconnect with the girl I was who was addicted to reading---and still am! If I had a granddaughter to share books with, Caddie Woodlawn would be at the top of the list!

  • 4.5 stars: I read this with my children and they moaned when I first brought it out. A few chapters in, though, they changed their minds. Caddie is quite a character. In 1864, Caddie is 11 and runs around with her brothers, Tom, 13, and Warren, 9. The family lives in Wisconsin and when they arrived, she and her sister Mary, were quite frail. Mary died so her father asked her mother to let him try an experiment. He wanted Caddie to run wild with the boys rather than learn to be a lady indoors. So she's raised as a tomboy and she and her brothers get into quite a bit of mischief.

    There are fun stories about their adventures with the Indians, the Circuit Rider (traveling minister), Uncle Edmund's visit, school and just life in general living in the wilderness.

    We especially enjoyed the chapter where her brother, Tom, made up a story. Caddie, Warren and Tom were plowing the field so to make it more interesting, one of them would plow while the other two sat by the fence and made up stories. Tom was the best storyteller so both Warren and Caddie wanted to hear his story. The main character in his story had some character flaws and we had a good discussion on him.

    Since it was first published in 1935 (and written about like in the 1860's), the times were quite different than today. We had some good discussions on what was better about that time and the conveniences we have today that make life easier. It was also good to see the similarities and see that human nature is the same over time. There's a part where Caddie wants to run away and my daughter has wanted to do that a few times so it was good for her to see that even children that lived a long time ago had some of those same feelings and we were able to see how Caddie worked through her feelings. The family has a big decision to make towards the end. We each guessed what they would decide and were surprised somewhat by the outcome.

  • This is a beloved book from my childhood; I read it numerous times from about ages 8 to 10 and always loved it. I introduced it to my own daughter when she was in second grade. (She checked it out from the library at school so often that they told her she could no longer check it out!!) I then purchased her her own copy, which she has read--and loved--many, many times.
    I wanted to revisit these wonderful characters again this winter--and I loved it once more.
    It is a timeless book, and one you will cherish.

  • This is an enjoyable bedtime chapter story that is read aloud every night to our young grandchildren. For our family, the characters are realistic and considered a better story Little House on the Prairie.

  • As a fourth grader, my teacher had read the chapter called "PeeWee", and I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't wait to read the whole book. It was my favorite story, so much so, that when, almost forty years later, I taught 3rd and 4th grades, we read this book as one of our Read-Alouds.
    The stories within were related to the author by Brink's own grandmother about her childhood growing up in a Pioneer Wisconsin family. My students also enjoyed reading about Caddie's adventures with her brothers and sisters in the 1860s.

  • My daughter loves this book! She thinks Caddie is very funny, and loved the adventures she goes on.

  • My grandkids were pleased.

  • My granddaughter burns through the books and this one was a keeper. She said she'd read it several more times before passing it down to her younger cousins. Thanks for the great choices to pick from.
