Little Britches:Father and I were Ranchers by Ralph Moody

Book Description:
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.

My thoughts:
Little Britches is a wonderful story of a Ralph Moody's family's will of survival which is continued in subsequent books. Ralph Moody is a wonderful and mesmerizing storyteller. Our whole family has enjoyed his books. I also highly recommend the audio series of the Little Britches series.
