Editorial Reviews

"[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life."—Chicago Sunday Tribune

"An affectionate portrait of ranch-town folk who knew how to help without humiliating, and a warm but ungushing tribute to a remarkable woman who deplored her inability to give her children everything, yet gave them much."—New York Times

"Man of the Family is everything that Little Britches was—a heart-warming, frank, com-pletely delightful narrative. Some readers may even like it better."—San Francisco Chronicle

"Mr. Moody remembers, and can put on paper, the terrifying passion of a small boy's heart, where there is no routine, and every victory and every disappointment is oversize and overwhelming."—New York Herald Tribune

"A heart-warming book. . . . Little Britches' fierce loyalty to his mother is matched only by his practical consideration for his brothers and sisters."—Christian Science Monitor

"Ralph Moody’s books should be read aloud in every family circle in America"—Sterling North

    We have 4 boys & have read Little Britches - Father & I were Ranchers, and we are almost done with the Man of the Family book. They are excellent "boy" books. We read them as a family read aloud. We laugh & cry (well, mom & dad cry) There is some "rough & tough" cowboy language, but other than that, it teaches GREAT work ethics & working together as a family team. We highly recommend it. Our family plans on buying the whole series. There are 8 books in all.

    Excellent book - great for boys instead of "Little House" books.CAUTION: contains many curse words - use it as a family read aloud and do some quick editing.
