These are some quotes from Caddie Woodlawn

  • “The most truly generous persons are those who give silently without hope of praise or reward.”
  • “How far I've come! I'm the same girl and yet not the same. I wonder if it's always like that? Folks keep growing from one person into another all their lives, and life is just a lot of everyday adventures. Well, whatever life is, I like it.”
  • “No, that is not what I want for you, my little girl. I want you to be a woman with a wise and understanding heart, healthy in body and honest in mind.”
  • “It was a hard struggle, but what I have in life I have earned with my own hands. I have done well, and I have an honest man's honest pride. I want no lands and honors which I have not won by my own good sense and industry.”

This book is very good but there is no real big problem that they face, so it's more of a biography than an adventure book. It's basically a adventurous biography.


This is a book that all strong girls would love to read. Caddie is a fun and playful character all tomboys will love. Her spirit and sense of fun have made this book a classic that readers have taken to their heart for fifty years.
