    " You might say this is the male version of "Little House on the Prairie." Sage and I are reading it together and we both love it. No flowery writing here, just clean fresh prose that draws you in and paints a scenery of a harsh but beautiful time. "

    " This was such a good book, it is beyond words. The charcters were people you care about and the setting, in Colorado, is wonderful. The trials and tribulations of living in Colorado in the early 1900's are amazing! I don't know as I could have survived those rough years. I know I will look out for the rest of Moody's books, I want to read all of them and follow the story as the years pass. A must read. "

    " Shawn and I read this together as a family. It was wonderful. It came highly recommended to us by our favorite book junkie, my sister-in-law. We were taught how to be better parents by the father in this story. He is so gentle and Christ-like in every manner. For me, classic literature is the best self-help book. If you need parenting tips, just read what "Pa" would do. The family endures many hardships and is better because of them. The young boy, Ralph, learns how to be an honest, hard-worker but still gets into the innocent little predicaments you'd expect from any young boy. We loved the little adventures he went on and literally could not put it down. It is inspirational and we were sad when it ended. Lucky for us, it's a series! "

About the Author
Author Ralph Moody

Ralph Owen Moody (1898–1982) was an American author who wrote 17 novels and autobiographies largely about the American West, though a few are set in New England. He was born in East Rochester, New Hampshire in 1898 but moved to Colorado with his family when he was eight in the hopes that a dry climate would improve his father Charles's tuberculosis. Moody detailed his experiences in Colorado in the first book of the Little Britches series, Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers. After his father died, eleven-year-old Moody assumed the duties of the “man of the house”. He and his sister Grace combined ingenuity with hard work in a variety of odd jobs to help their mother provide for their large family. The Moody clan returned to the East Coast sometime after Charles's death. After a period as livestock business owner in rural Kansas, Moody married and moved to Kansas City. Ralph and Edna Moody had three children.
