    " I am really liking this series of books. There is something wonderful about the simple yet poetic way Moody writes about farming and ranching. This one started off slow, but ended delightfully! "

    " Got a little tired of the grandfather's language, but there are some awesome insights into human nature. "

    " This is one of my all time favorite series. I have 3 more books to go. Will definitely read these again - as a family and by myself. "

    " Ralph at 15 finds himself living with his grandfather on his Massachusetts ranch and has a dickens of a time with the crotchety old man. A good part of this book was really discouraging, but through hard work and swallowing his pride time and again, they eventually develop a heartwarming love for each other. Reading about the pull of the land and connection that he feels to it and his family stirred some feelings in me about the land I grew up on. The power one person can have in another's life through serving them is apparent. "

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.
