Publisher's Description

The fatherless Moody family moved from Colorado to Medford, Massachusetts, in 1912, when Ralph was entering his teens.

"Just little things that would have been all right in Colorado were always getting me in trouble." So he is sent to his grandfather's farm in Maine, where he finds a new set of adventures.

    This is another book in the "Little Britches" story, but it takes on a flavor that is almost completely different from Ralph's experiences out west. Instead of the small boy proving himself worthy of his work among tough cowboys, he is a struggling teen, attempting to get along with his difficult grandfather on the family's farm in Maine.

    The story is filled with details of farm life, yet I never found it mundane. There are some great lessons about family relationships and personal growth woven in very subtly.

    I enjoyed exploring the history of the early 20th century from the viewpoint of the average family, and I even learned a few things about farming!

    Like all of the Little Britches books, this is great as a personal read or with the family.

    This is an inspiring series. A wonderful story to share with the family; it makes one really take a look at the way we live today and realize how much we have lost due to technology.I was amazed at how the people had to really work to survive. There were no government handouts. I was very interested in the farming techniques and the livestock handling. I think it really made me take a look at our interactions with older relatives, be they parents or grandparents. Ralph was frustrated and angry with his grandfather many times but still maintained a respectful relationship with him. The language of this older Maine farmer was very interesting and colorful. I appreciated the Christian virtues and the scriptural references.

    After reading the first two, my children and I couldn't wait to read "The Field of Home". It is a little drier than the others, there are lengthy descriptions of farming techniques, but enjoyable. If you get bogged down with Grandfathers orneryness, keep going - there is a happy ending!
