What I’m Reading: Father and I Were Ranchers

I just finished up the audio book, Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers by Ralph Moody.  This is a true story so that’s a plus right there.

Way back in high school our English teacher had read this book to us and I remember really liking it.  When I saw that it was available in audio book so I decided to give it a try again.   Happily, I liked it again.

The writing style is real at ease.  The descriptions are very good and I felt like I could image and see what the author was depicting.  I love seeing how life was then and how life is now.

Amazon readers must have liked it too as it it rated a five stars book!  Here’s Amazon’s description, “The Moody family moves from New Hampshire to a Colorado ranch. Experience the pleasures and perils of ranching in 20th Century America, through the eyes of a youngster.”   Trust me, the book is more that the description.

I see that there is a second book..well actually a series.   On Amazon they call this the “Little House on the Prairie for boys”.  I am putting myself on the waiting list for book two, Man of the Family.

Here is the book version Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers and here is the Kindle verion Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers if you are interested.

  1. I read this whole series of books a few years ago. It is fascinating to see all that this boy accomplished as a teen, and it’s a true story! Time to get them from the library again – good summer reading!

    Thanks for the book suggestion. Just yesterday I was thinking that I needed to find some good audio books to listen to this summer while I drive back and forth to the camp where my husband works.
