Day 23 / 105 - Little Britches

This was the second book my son needed to read for his curriculum this fall which I read along with him.  I'm so glad that I did.  It has become a new favorite.

Set in early twentieth century Colorado, Ralph Moody tells the story of his childhood, along with his family's struggle, as they adjust to ranching life.  It reads like a combination between a Little House book and a classic western.  It only took me three days to finish it.

Ralph beginning working away from home when he was only 9.  My son wrote a persuasive essay on why it was necessary for Ralph to begin working at that young age and how his full-time work experience helped to shape him and his family.
