Editorial Reviews

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

"[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
