Caddie Woodlawn is a story set in the 1860’s and is about a little girl, named Caddie, who is a tomboy. Caddie is very adventurous and is always with her brothers running wild, instead of in the home with the girls and her mother. Caddie, has also formed a bond with the neighboring Indians. She finds them intriguing and harmless. Caddie does not see color, but rather regular people when she looks at the Indians. Caddie is responsible for stopping a rampage between her family and others against the Indians. She fights to make sure that everyone knows that they mean no harm. Her example and her determination make this story a great read. Caddie is different than most girls during this time and she is very strong-willed, which makes her a great example for all girls. I think that Caddie Woodlawn is a good story for all young adolescents to read because it deals with differences in types of people and styles of living. Caddie is very relatable and makes great strides in promoting differences and acceptances. It is not every day that a young girl can stop a rampage between Indians and settlers.
