Overview

Musical

Characters 8 male, 7 female, plus 18 children

Carol Ryrie Brink's Newberry Award-winning novel Caddie Woodlawn is brought to exuberant life as a musical. Caddie (the iconic, high-spirited Wisconsin pioneer girl beloved by generations of readers) leads her willing siblings in a series of thrilling adventures, not always with the approval of her traditional Bostonian mother. Her father, however, encourages her antics, that she might thrive amidst the new, tougher ways of the West. In a dramatic climax, Caddie single-handedly diffuses a potentially deadly clash between the terrified settlers and the local Dakota tribe through a daring and dangerous act. But her action only deepens her conflict with her mother. Ultimately, Caddie learns invaluable lessons about reconciling the head-strong child she's been, and the responsible adult she is soon to be. Through it all, the sacredness of tradition - passed from one generation to the next - is powerfully dramatized. As one wise friend tells Caddie: "Families - they're our link to forever, lass."

I fell in love with this story when I was 10 years old. I purchased this copy for my niece with the hope that she will be as fascinated by the bravery and strength of character of red headed tomboy Caddie as I was. Caddie did things I would never dream of but she opened my eyes to prairie life in the mid 1800s. I loved her and her brother's antics. I also enjoyed her proper mother and sisters. I highly recommend this book.
