Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink

Caddie Woodlawn is a wonderful true story (the stories were passed down orally for a time until they were written down by Caddie's granddaughter) about a young girl and her family growing up in the wilds of western Wisconsin during the Civil War. Charming, humorous and poignant, it makes a great read-aloud (and don't forget the sequel Magical Melons a.k.a. Caddie Woodlawn's Family).

Also check out Karen Edmisten's great post today on a wonderful thread from this book.
