Little Britches Father and I were Ranchers by Ralph Moody


The cover of this book says it all. Ralph Moody's books "should be read aloud in every family circle in America." I have only read this one, there are eight in this series. Moody has a total of 19 books. Little Britches is about ranching life in the early 1900's, based on his true life and set in Colorado. There is nothing I can say about this book except that you should read it, and read it to your family. I love how every one in the family adds to the success of the ranch. Everyone can make a difference and in fact has to. The lessons that can be learned and taught from this book are immeasurable. Not only is it a great learning tool, it has a fascinating story line that will keep attention of even the most attention deprived youngsters. Horses, cowboys, chocolate, feuding neighbors, fights, courage, fear and rodeo, this book has everything. This is a family collectible book, one to read and to own.
