Little Britches

I have just finished reading Little Britches by Ralph Moody. It is a story of Ralph's childhood growing up near Denver in the early 1900's. The children eagerly listened each night as we heard how Ralph and his family moved from Eastern US to Colorado, how they survived their poorly serviced farm, how their Father was very resourceful and how Ralph either overcome various temptations, or succumbed and paid the price.

Most chapters ended in discussions of what the children would do in similar situations, or what they should do! This is the first book in the series by Ralph Moody and we have now started Man of the Family which begins immediately after Little Britches finished.

I highly recommend this as a book for all the family.
