Caddie Woodlawn

By Carol Ryrie Brink

“It’s a strange thing, but somehow we expect more of girls than boys. It is sisters and wives and mothers… who keep the world sweet and beautiful. A woman’s work is something fine and noble to grow up to, and it is just as important as a man’s.”

– John Woodlawn, Caddie Woodlawn
