Reviews

"Ralph Moody's books should be read aloud in every family circle in America"--Sterling North--Sterling North
"[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life."--Chicago Sunday Tribune--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--New York Times
"Man of the Family is everything that Little Britches was--a heart-warming, frank, com-pletely delightful narrative. Some readers may even like it better."--San Francisco Chronicle--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--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--Christian Science Monitor
