Little Britches

Father and I Were Ranchers

Little Britches Series #1
by Ralph Moody, Edward Shenton (Illustrator)
Publisher: Purple House Press
Hardcover, 260 pages
Price: $24.99

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.
