Product Description

Little Britches becomes the man in his family after his father's early death, taking in concomitant reponsibilities as well as opportunities. During the summer of his twelfth year he works on a cattle ranch in the shadow of Pike's Peak, earning a dollar a day. Little Britches is tested against seasoned cowboys on the range and in the corral. He drives cattle through a dust storm, eats his weight in flapjacks, and falls in love with a blue outlaw horse.

Publisher's Description

Little Britches becomes the "man" in his family after his father's early death, taking on the concomitant responsibilities as well as opportunities. During the summer of his twelfth year he works on a cattle ranch in the shadow of Pike's Peak, earning a dollar a day. Little Britches is tested against seasoned cowboys on the range and in the corral. He drives cattle through a dust storm, eats his weight in flapjacks, and falls in love with a blue outlaw horse.

Following Little Britches and developing an episode noted near the end of Man of the Family, The Home Ranch continues the adventures of young Ralph Moody. Soon after returning from the ranch, he and his mother and siblings will go east for a new start, described in Mary Emma & Company and The Fields of Home. All these titles have been reprinted as Bison Books.

    I think that young boys will love hearing this book read to them. I'm an adult and I'm hooked on the whole series. But this book focuses on Ralph Moody's summer rounding up cattle and breaking in horses with rough and tumble cowboys. At 13 years old, he spends an entire summer away from his family, working from sunrise to sunset on a ranch. Hopefully, it was safer to send boys to live with men in the early part of the twentieth century than it is today.

    Moody's books are full of lessons he learns, mostly about himself, but they're never preachy. He mentions them almost off-handedly. He has a cultural fear of God and deep respect for his mother's faith, but works with the men while the women go off to church.

    These books show alot of what a boy goes through in his mind when he is striving to be a man and a good one. He is vulnerable but hard-working, feisty yet able to compromise too. I recommend it for good, family reading together.

    This book happens during the time frame of the second book in the series, Man of the Family. It was a story that deserved it's own book. The story of Ralph's family continues in #4, Mary Emma & Company. Excellent reading as are all in the series.

    I got this book because I thought it would go straight into where #2 left off. No it didn't I was reading the same stuff and finally I got to where #2 left off! I was disappointed because I started #4 and it starts right from #2 so I am confused!
