Caddie Woodlawn and Sterling North Paper Dolls

Ever wonder what it would be like to live in Wisconsin 83 years ago? What about 143 years?

Two books, 'Rascal' and 'Caddie Woodlawn', can give you a good idea. Although not actually worn by them, the outfits featured in these paper dolls are the kind of clothing Caddie Woodlawn and Sterling North might have worn while growing up in Wisconsin.

About Caddie Woodlawn

In 1935, Carol Ryrie Brink wrote the Newberry Award-winning book, "Caddie Woodlawn."

Caddie's adventures are based on the stories that Carol Brink's grandmother (the real Caddie) told her about growing up in frontier western Wisconsin in the 1860s.

About Sterling North

Thomas Sterling North was born in 1906 and grew up in Edgerton, Wisconsin.

When Sterling was 11 years old, in 1918, he raised a baby raccoon named "Rascal." Later in 1963 he wrote a book named "Rascal" based on his childhood memories.

In the book Sterling renamed his hometown "Brailsford Junction." The mischievous raccoon and Sterling become best friends for a perfect year of adventure. They swim, fish and explore the countryside together.
