Often touted as the "Little House for Boys," these books tell the story of author Ralph Moody, beginning as a young boy on a Colorado ranch in the early 1900's.
These books make absorbing read-alouds for younger children, too. Be aware, however, that there is some inappropriate language used - no doubt in keeping with the actual verbiage of rugged cowboys and characters of the time.
