    " Another great book in the little britches collection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/23/2013

    " I love the whole Little Britches series. This one was #7 and although it kept to the charachter of the others it is probably my least favorite. If you like the Little House books you will like these. The American west as seen through the eyes of a little boy. "

    " Love these books. Would have shot Lonnie the first week, in this book, but oh-well. "

    " Good book, but kind of sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenalyn C | 8/20/2012

    " didn't like his buddy or diabetes "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/31/2012

    " This book skips some time since the last book in the series. Ralph is now 19 and headed West to help his health. He works odd jobs, including on a movie lot and sculpting. I didn't think this would be as interesting as the others, but it held my attention like all the rest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magda | 11/13/2011

    " I love how this shows that the author can pretty much turn his hand to anything he tries, and he's tried quite a few things. I don't know how I'd present the "lying to Mother so she doesn't worry" aspect of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 8/31/2011

    " Hey this is a good book for these times! Ralph just has a head for business, and making money in times of want, when no jobs are to be had! Ralph Moody is smart, yet he has a big heart which can sometimes overpower his business sense! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 8/25/2011

    " Still a great book in the series, but I was so annoyed that he didn't dump his "buddy" that it was hard for me to like it as much. Still, it is crazy what great business sense he has, and how much money he ended up making! And the ending? You have to be a big person to not be upset about that!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 10/27/2010

    " I can't believe you could make a living from carving, then making plaster busts. Some of the trouble his friend gets into is ridiculous. Diabetes must have been hard to live with back then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 9/1/2010

    " I like reading this series. Ralph is 19 and destitute and trying to survive with diabetes. He makes a selfish friend Lonnie that drives me crazy to the end though, and it didn't have as many stories with the exemplary moral character that his other books have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/27/2010

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.
