I live in Australia., and we have our own treasured pioneer stories.. I had not heard of Ralph Moody until a month ago , but NOW. I 'd like people all over AUstralia to read it in our homes.,too, it will inspire and entertain young and old alike.. I Highly recommend it...
This book should be of definite interest to residents of Denver's southern suburbs. (The farm was near what is now W. Hampden Ave. and S. Harlan St.) Those whose ancestors were homesteaders or sharecroppers will appreciate knowing what sorts of things their kin encountered.
The account is well-written and generally moves at a brisk pace; quite an impressive first work for a man who did not start writing until his 50th birthday. The book is classified as autobiographical history; by contrast, Ivan Doig's work (I'm particularly thinking "The Whistling Season" here) is much more literary in its character and plot development, and is proper fiction. For the mood, you'd want Doig; for the unadorned story, this is the one.
Some reviewers seem to like the book for its moralizing segments. While I appreciate the reporting of Ralph's father's views and Ralph's reactions to them, they struck me as formulaic and somewhat simplistic in the Madoff era. Many reviewers cite it as a good read-aloud book for school-age children; I haven't tried that yet, but plan to.
