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. nbsp; 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.… (més)

Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers de Ralph Moody (1950)

  1. 00
    Hattie Big Sky de Kirby Larson (cmbohn)
    cmbohn: Even though this book is fiction, it has the same spirit of a young person trying to build a new life out West. Unlike Ralph, Hattie has to do it all on her own.

I should maybe wait until the emotions from the last chapter have passed; but from the very first chapters, I had already decided this is a book that every single one of my children will read, and each of the books in the series are on my to-read list, at least mentally.

The language of the book is so beautiful, the way Moody simply describes his life and activities. It’s plain-spoken and matter-of-fact, but there’s almost a poetry to it, and the narrator describes things just enough to get a good idea of the places and people and how he feels about them and not a word more. There’s an ease to his storytelling, and the adventures this young boy has are exciting and contain just the right amount of danger. I was also constantly in love with Moody’s relationship with his father. He learns so much from him and he loves and respects his father so fully, and he finds such beautiful ways to express it. And any man who is able to teach his son so much about life with a soft word and firm actions, but also so much trust and regard is certainly a man to be admired. It about broke my heart when the last chapter came around and it was obvious what was to come.

I have tomboys and girls who love horses and one little boy who loves a good story. This whole series is destined to be added into our home’s bookshelves, and read for years to come. ( )

I think I would have been fascinated with this book as a kid, but as an adult I find the pace just a little too fast. I like to relax with a book, and this is not the book for that. It moves at a rapid clip from one scene to the next and is a great view of the west at the turn of the century. Highly recommend for late grade-schoolers or middle-schoolers. ( )

Really episodic, but well written and engaging. This is probably a somewhat romanticized version of the author's childhood, and is as much about his relationship with his father as it is about the west.

If you're thinking of reading it to your kids read it yourself first. It might not suit all children terribly well. You'll be glad you read it though. ( )

Good story - similar to "Little House on the Prairie" series, but with a male main character. ( )

Ralph and his family move from the east coast to Colorado, per the convincing story of cousin Phil. When the family first arrived there was doubt, but they made the most of the shack they were to rent and make their home.
However, life got a little trickier and dangerous, when some of the ranchers started stealing water for the crops, and an irrigation war broke out.
