Very dissappointed , too much cussing.

I purchased the first two books of this series for my 10yr old son. At first we were very pleased. Even his sisters enjoyed them. But as the story progresses some of the male characters begin to cuss. Not just once or twice, but enough that my son, who really enjoyed the story itself, said he didn't want to listen to it anymore. From the many reviews I read, I believed this series to be full of high moral teaching and character building. And it is, except of the apparant belief that it is manly to curse. If you are desperate for good literature for boys, I would suggest buying the books and reading them to your sons so you can skip the language. I learned this lesson the hard way after forking out $30 for the first two audiobooks. For me, I think I'll just keep looking.

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.
