By Carol Ryrie Brink
Great family read-aloud that appeals to boys and girls alike. The main character, Caddie, is a tomboy who grows up in wild, western Wisconsin. Unlike most people in her town (including her mother and sisters), Caddie is friends with the Indians and has learned early on what she eventually helps more grown-ups to realize: you can’t judge a person by the color of their skin. Full of suspense and hilarious, heart-warming adventures. 288 pages.
