about

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.
Ralph Moody (1898–1982) is the author of Come on Seabicuit! as well as the Little Britches series about a boy's life on a Colorado ranch, all available in Bison Books editions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all-time favourite books! This book definitely deserves a book on anyone's bookshelf. It is based on the real-life story of Ralph Moody and his growing up years on a Colorado ranch. Lots of great, everyday adventures and things to learn from this young man. I read it to my own kids (ages 7-11) and my school class (ages 9 and 10) and everyone loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Family Reading This is the first book in the series we have read and since reading it, we have purchased all 8 books. These books are fun family entertainment and are based on the true story of Ralph Moody's life. I read two chapters every night to my two sons (ages 7 and 8) and we all thoroughly enjoy the adventures of Ralph. This book is well-written without any "fluff"....just the good, bad and the ugly! I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

So do adventures, wonderfully told, that prepare Ralph to take his father's place.The first volume of Moody's little Britches series, this time-tested favorite is hard to beat for its "dreaming and refreshing account of family life". (Chicago Tribune)

Editorial Reviews

"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
