Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 2/19/2014

    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni Miranda | 2/9/2014

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 1/20/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerianna | 1/14/2014

    " Just finished this and Shaking the Nickel Bush by the same author. I love that they are autobiographical, and I've really fallen in love with Ralph. I'll be looking him up in the next life. The first two books (Little Britches and Man of the Family) are the best, but these are good, also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/14/2014

    " Ralph gets into trouble and is sent to help is Grandfather on a farm in Maine. He has to deal with a VERY HARD person, and to learn from him and his Uncle Levi. I loved Uncle Levi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/31/2013

    " This series keeps getting better. Ralph has trouble living in the city so his mother sends him to live with her father on his farm in Maine. Raplh and Grandfather have a "war" about how to run the farm, but end up with peace and properity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted | 10/2/2013

    " Another 'coming of age' genre read. Troubled teenager sent to live on Grandpa's farm. Ralphie and his Grandfather conflict almost immediately but find mutual respect in their love of the farm. Appropriate for young readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeniann | 9/30/2013

    " The fourth book in the Little Britches series and great just like the others. This one starts off being frustrating to read but gets much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi Schulz | 9/28/2013

    " Starts out so frustrating - Grandpa is a difficult man, to say the least, but it is well worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 9/14/2013

    " Good...I didn't enjoy the story as much as his first one, but I probably learned more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clarica | 5/22/2013

    " We read this as a family. It was good, I like the Ralph Moody books. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Charbonneau | 4/13/2012

    " I really enjoyed the author's memoir of a year on his granfather's farm in Maine when he was 15 in 1912. He does make himself out as a very clever boy -- but maybe he was. I'm planning now to read his first book, Little Britches. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clara | 4/4/2011

    " This was a lucky find at the library book sale. The third "autobiography" of Ralph Moody's life was just as enjoyable as the first two. I was engrossed in the story, attached to the characters and greatly enjoyed this book. Very clean, highly recommended and a wonderful slice of America. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jolene | 2/7/2011

    " I am reading all of Ralph Moody's books! The series starts with Little Britches. Some are more enjoyable to read than others. This one was so cute! I wanted to move to Maine and farm with them even if the grandpa was onery!!! I know this book wouldn't appeal to everyone but I really liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chan | 10/12/2010

    " We have read this series as a family. We loved the first book the best but have enjoyed them all so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Art King | 6/23/2010

    " The whole set of Ralph Moody books rank at the very top of read-aloud books with our children. We have read them all several times. This is my favorite. What a powerful story of the contending of wills between an old man and his grandson. You won't forget this story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelby Stafford | 8/11/2009

    " My least favorite in the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 2/11/2009

    " My favorite Ralph Moody book so far. His memoirs of growing up in 1910's America show how much life has changed in 100 years. I doubt teens today could do half of what they did back then. "

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.
