Book Description University of Nebraska Press, United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Tran Mawicke (illustrator). Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Social historians of the future, seeking material on the life of American boys during the first few decades of the present century will ignore the books of Ralph Moody at their peril.[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life - `Chicago Sunday Tribune`. A sentimental reminiscence rich in good humor and courage, and in Americana. It is a story simply told of a young man s unself-pitying and successful struggle against what seem the unsurmountable odds of dire poverty and desperate illness - `New York Herald Tribune Books`. Skinny and suffering from diabetes, Ralph Moody is ordered by a Boston doctor to seek a more healthful climate. Going west again is a delightful prospect. His childhood adventures on a Colorado ranch were described in `Little Britches` and `Man of the Family`, also Bison Books. Now nineteen years old, he strikes out into new territory hustling odd jobs, facing the problem of getting fresh milk and leafy green vegetables. He scrapes around to survive, risking his neck as a stunt rider for a movie company. With an improvident buddy named Lonnie, he camps out in an Arizona canyon and shakes the nickel bush by sculpting plaster of paris busts of lawyers and bankers. This is 1918, and the young men travel through the Southwest not on horses but in a Ford aptly named Shiftless. New readers and old will enjoy this entry in the continuing saga of Ralph Moody.
