(Paperback, 260 pages, first published in 1950)

Ralph Moody was eight years old in 1906 when his family moved from New Hampshire to a Colorado ranch. Through his eyes we experience the pleasures and perils of ranching there early in the twentieth century. Auctions and roundups, family picnics, irrigation wars, tornadoes and wind storms give authentic color to Little Britches. So do adventures, wonderfully told, that equip Ralph to take his father's place when it becomes necessary. Little Britches was the literary debut of Ralph Moody, who wrote about the adventures of his family in eight glorious books.

Cautions: According to Redeemed Reader, "There are some instances of coarse language. The cowboys Ralph works with during the summer use language that is realistically unrefined, and the Moodys’ best neighbor occasionally uses rough language as well. This is in stark contrast to the higher standard of speech that is set by Father. As a read-aloud, this is easily censored, but parents should know it is there." See full review here
