Publisher's Summary

Newbery Medal Winner, 1936

No one would accuse 11-year-old Caddie Woodlawn of being dainty and ladylike. In spite of her mother’s best efforts, Caddie is as wild as the wind, playing freely and rambunctiously with her two brothers in the Wisconsin backwoods. There are rafts to build and trees to climb and pranks to play. Caddie especially likes to watch her friend Indian John build birchbark canoes at the river. 

Every day seems wide with possibility - as wide as the frontier. But living on the edge of civilization has its risks, too. And when Indians threaten to attack the settlers, it is Caddie’s resourcefulness and bravery that save the day. 

The author, Carol Ryrie Brink - granddaughter of the real Caddie Woodlawn - based her book on the true stories her grandmother used to tell her about growing up on the frontier.

Great story for boys and girls alike

If you enjoy the Little House series, you will love this book too! What makes this book special is Caddie's dad. He sees her for who she is and doesn't try to change her, but embraces her.

A good review

I liked the story very much tho there where parts of it that I found less interesting. The reader is quite good and at the beginning it seems it's not good but now I can't imagine Caddie or Tom speaking another way. I recommend this book to all children from the age of 8 and adults who like the early industrial revolution in America like me.

similar feel to Anne of Green Gables, but would choose that first. Well read, but story quite drawn out.

Look no further for a timeless & charming story!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend Caddie anyday! And while the main protagonist is a girl, there are enough other characters- including Caddie's brothers- to satisfy the whole family!

What other book might you compare Caddie Woodlawn to and why?

The story takes place a long time ago, so for a similar feel, try Little Women or The Little House series!

Which scene was your favorite?

My daughter liked the fact that Caddie is a tomboy and that she had many adventures! Once funny scene was when Caddie's uncle played a joke on her and rigged the raft she was riding on fall apart so that she splashed into the water!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This story has tender moments, heart-stopping moments, and everything in-between!

Any additional comments?

Caddie Woodlawn is a likable book with likable characters all the way around! My daughter and I were listening to it together while we dusted her bedroom, and it was entertaining in a way that only the best books can be!
