Product Description

The protagonist, Mary Emma Moody, widowed mother of six, has taken her family east in 1912 to begin a new life. Her son, Ralph, then thirteen, recalls how the Moodys survive that first bleak winter in a Massachusetts town. The family's run-ins with authority and with broken furnaces in winter are evocative of a full and warm family life.

Publisher's Description

The protagonist, Mary Emma Moody, widowed mother of six, has taken her family east in 1912 to begin a new life. Her son, Ralph, then thirteen, recalls how the Moodys survive that first bleak winter in a Massachusetts town. Money and prospects are lacking, but not so faith and resourcefulness. "Mother" in Little Britches and Man of the Family, Mary Emma emerges fully as a character in this book, and Ralph, no longer called "Little Britches," comes into his own. The family’s run-ins with authority and with broken furnaces in winter are evocative of a full and warm family life.

Mary Emma & Company continues the Moody saga that started in Colorado with Little Britches and runs through Man of the Family and The Home Ranch. All these titles have been reprinted as Bison Books, as has The Fields of Home, in which Ralph leaves the Massachusetts town for his grandfather's farm in Maine.

Author Bio

Ralph Moody (1898–1982) is the author of Come on Seabicuit! as well as the Little Britches series about a boy's life on a Colorado ranch, all available in Bison Books editions.

Editorial Reviews

"Moody has recorded with fidelity and skill a time and a place and a way of life that is, in itself, the essence of the American dream. Reading his book is like returning to Grandmother's kitchen with the heavenly smell of sugar cookies escaping from the oven."—Chicago Sunday Tribune

"In Ralph Moody’s . . . book of young memories grinding poverty is overshadowed by the diligence that overcame it. Bitter cold is forgot-ten in heartwarming affection and humor. Unpretentious courage lights every page."—Christian Science Monitor

"It is a story of family industry and ingenuity. . . . A well-told story, full of interesting detail about life in the first part of the twentieth century, and children, particularly, will find it pleasant reading."—New York Herald Tribune Books

    I have read almost every book in the "Little Britches" series and just love them! Ralph Moody is an excellent story teller! This book is one of my favorites. You really get a good look at Ralph's mother, Mary. She was quite the lady!! Just a note to parents: there are a few curse words in a few of Ralph Moody's books. I don't think this book has any, but don't remember for sure. If you want your children to read them, you may want to pre-read and marker out the words you don't want them to see- or read them aloud. Otherwise the content is awesome!! You will fall in love with Ralph and his family!!
