Staff Reviews

This book is the first in a wonderful series of autobiographies that follow the author and his family through the first three decades of the twentieth century. This first volume starts with family's move from New England to Colorado when Ralph is eight. The range of emotions the reader (and the audience if reading aloud - highly recommended) experiences covers the spectrum. The Ralph Moody books should be shared and cherished by any family that enjoys reading together.

— Chris


Ralph was eight years old in 1906 when his family moved from New Hampshire to a Colorado ranch. Through his eyes, the pleasures and perils of ranching in the early twentieth century are experienced... auctions and roundups, family picnics, irrigation wars, tornadoes and wind storms all give authentic color to Little Britches. So do wonderfully told adventures, which equip Ralph for the path his life will take.
