Eleven-year-old Caddie, and her family, lived in the rolling hills of western Wisconsin during the mid-1800s. Caddie, whose real name is Caroline Augusta, is a bit different from her brothers and sisters. When her family came to Wisconsin from Boston, she was very ill. Once she got better, her father begged her mother to let her grow up free, and running wild, and that's how she is. She would rather plow a field than bake a cake. Caddie, along with her brothers, gets herself into an amazing number of scrapes. This book is a fictionalized account of events that actually happened to the author's grandmother. It won the Newbery Medal in 1936.
