'Ralph Moody's books should be read aloud in every family circle in America' - Sterling North. '[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". ""Man of the Family" is everything that "Little Britches" was - a heart-warming, frank, completely delightful narrative. Some readers may even like it better' - "San Francisco Chronicle".'Mr. Moody remembers, and can put on paper, the terrifying passion of a small boy's heart, where there is no routine, and every victory and every disappointment is oversize and overwhelming' - "New York Herald Tribune". 'A heart-warming book..."Little Britches'" fierce loyalty to his mother is matched only by his practical consideration for his brothers and sisters' - "Christian Science Monitor". Fortified with Yankee ingenuity and western can-do energy, the Moody family, transplanted from New England, builds a new life on a Colorado ranch early in the twentieth century. Father has died and Little Britches shoulders the responsibilities of a man at age eleven. "Man of the Family" continues true pioneering adventures as unforgettable as those in "Little Britches" and "The Fields of Home", also available as Bison Books.
