Ralph Moody was eight years old in 1906 when his family moved from New Hampshire to a Colorado ranch. Through his eyes we experience the pleasures and perils of ranching there early in the twentieth century. Auctions and roundups, family picnics, irrigation wars, tornadoes and wind storms give authentic color to Little Britches. So do adventures, wonderfully told, that equip Ralph to take his father's place when it becomes necessary. Little Britches was the literary debut of Ralph Moody, who wrote about the adventures of his family in eight glorious books, all available as Bison Books.

Review:

"[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life."—Chicago Sunday Tribune (Chicago Sunday Tribune)

"This is a gallant book—from the first sentence until the last. It is a true story, written in the first person, written without sentimentality but with extraordinary drama."—Christian Science Monitor (Christian Science Monitor)

"A most appealing book . . . Its genuineness and its simplicity will build up a large audience of enthusiastic readers."—San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco Chronicle)

"You will search long . . . To find a more disarming and refreshing account of family life than Ralph Moody has set down in Little Britches."—Chicago Sunday Tribune (Chicago Sunday Tribune)

"Enthusiastically recommended for young and old."—Library Journal (Library Journal)

"Ralph Moody’s books should be read aloud in every family circle in America"—Sterling North (Sterling North)

"The story of the Moody family is told without embellishment in a simple, straight-forward style. It is especially suited for reading aloud as a family. The difficulties Ralph faces, the mishaps and consequences, will provoke quality discussions with middle schoolers and older students, although children as young as third grade will enjoy and benefit from the story."—Homeschooling Today (Barbara Blakey Homeschooling Today)
