Touching story, Great Narration

Ralph Moody has a great style of writing and Cameron Beierle's narration makes it come alive. Together they give you a boy's view on life on the ranch, the life lessons he learns, and how he grows into being the man of the family at age 11. Most of the book had me laughing at an unpredictable twist or a wry statement of facts. The end broke my heart and had me yearning to listen to the next story. It's a great story well told and all the better because it is true.

Wonderful Story for Whole Family

What made the experience of listening to Father and I Were Ranchers the most enjoyable?

This is one of those books that you hate to see come to an end. It is a great story to share with the whole family, especially those with younger children (maybe 8 years and up). It illustrates good values, a great work ethic, and a family that sticks together no matter what. The narrator is first rate.

Have you listened to any of Cameron Beierle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have only heard Cameron Beierle in the Little Britches series. The narration is fantastic.
