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. nbsp; 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.

I read this book aloud to my 10 and 11 year old son and daughter. It took a bit to get into it at first, but once we got going they were very eager to read more together. I love the lessons that the boy learns from his father. The evening that we read the final chapter was sobering and special and gave us a lot to reflect on (I cried!). This book is a treasure. We look forward to enjoying the other books in the series.

This is a touching story of a young boy growing up on a ranch, learning to be a man. The book is wonderfully descriptive, filled with emotion, and will have you experiencing life in old West.

This book is about Ralph Moody when he was 8 years old. He and the rest of his family moved from Denver to the country. I personally enjoyed it.
