Caddie Woodlawn


by Carol Ryrie Brink

Published: 1935

This story, set during the 1860’s in the west, is based on the author’s grandmother’s life.  The book is anecdotes from  a year of Caddie’s life and is full of interesting history and a glimpse into everyday life during the time.  The book is a lot of fun, although sometimes the jumps in the story seem a bit abrupt.  There isn’t much of an overall plot tying things together, which can make the book seem a bit choppy at times.  Still, it’s a happy story and very readable.  3/5.
