Carol R Brink
Carol Ryrie Brink (1895-1981) was an American children's and adult author who wrote over thirty books. Her novel Caddie Woodlawn, which received the 1936 Newbery Medal for the most meritorious contribution to American children's literature in a particular year, is well-known. Carol was born and raised in Idaho, where she later attended the University of Idaho. She transferred to the University of California and earned a Phi Beta Kappa diploma in 1918. She married the following year and settled in Saint Paul, Minnesota, with her husband, where they raised two children and resided for more than forty years.
In 1934, Brink published his debut novel, Anything Can Happen on the River. The Book Crush Rediscoveries series includes three of Brink's children's books: Family Grandstand (1952), Family Sabbatical (1956), and The Highly Trained Dogs of Professor Petit (1953).
