What the Critics Say

"[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life." (Chicago Sunday Tribune)"An affectionate portrait of ranch-town folk who knew how to help without humiliating, and a warm but ungushing tribute to a remarkable woman who deplored her inability to give her children everything, yet gave them much." (New York Times)

Quality family time

Our entire family has enjoyed listening to this series. The narrator, Cameron Beirerle, does a superb job of bringing the characters to life. I honestly can't imagine reading the books after having listened to them first. We have been sad at the end of each book that it must come to an end and we don't yet have the next book ready to listen to.

Not only is the audio format excellent, but the true credit goes to Ralph Moody for authoring such a well written and exciting story of his life. There has been so much opportunity for rich discussion with our children thanks to the Little Britches series.

I finished this book in 2 days. It was wonderful! Full of old fashion values and what it actually took to get through harder times. I loved this book so much I am now reading the book.
