Caddie Woodlawn - Carol Ryrie Brink

Product Description(
Caddie Woodlawn is a real adventurer. She'd rather hunt than sew and plow than bake, and tries to beat her brother's dares every chance she gets. Caddie is friends with 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 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 more than seventy years.

MY THOUGHTS: This is a really good book.  Reading about how the pioneers lived and all the troubles they had.  But there are also lots of good "stuff" here too.  The children learn how to run a farm and look for food.  They lots of adventures while learning everything they need to know to survive in the wilderness.   I give this book 5.....
