This one is a "keeper", not a "borrow from the library". I suggest that you get it and read it. You are going to fall in love with Little Britches.

After reading it aloud to my kids, I purchased it on CD, read by Cameron Beirele Father and I Were Ranchers (The Little Britches Series Book 1) [UNABRIDGED] and they have worn it out listening to it in their rooms. Mr. Beirele does an excellent job doing the voices (book 6 six is a little different but still not bad). We now have all the books in print and audio CD (except book 8 which is seems you have to get as an MP3 download). My absolute favorites are the first 4 (Little Britches: Man of the Family (The Little Britches Series) [UNABRIDGED]The Home Ranch (Bison Book) and Mary Emma & Company (Bison Book). The Fields of Home turns out good, but his crotchety old grandfather just about drove me crazy. Shaking the Nickel Bush is probably the least favorite. Ralph has a "buddy" named Lonnie that is a lazy leech and I kept preaching for Ralph to dump him through the whole book. When he is finally rid of him, he finds all of his savings is gone too. That one might be better read than listened to because the Lonnie character is grating and Mr. Beirele suddenly can't get situated on a voice for Ralph and it changes throughout the CD.
I think these books should be required reading in every home in America. We need more everyday heros to emulate. Ralph was a dutiful, devoted son who was not afraid to write about the dumb things he did as well as the smart ones. Just be aware there is some "cowboy language" in most of the books. That's how I described it to my children and they understood - we are not cowboys. It is certainly mild by today's standards but still bears mentioning. The family is a family of faith and that is more impressionable than the language. Just d**n and h*ll is all I remember hearing.
Some other Moody favorites are Come on Seabiscuit!;Stagecoach West; and Kit Carson and the Wild Frontier.
