KIRKUS REVIEW

There's real stuff here about life in Colorado and it is told simply and directly and reveals a sometimes harsh but always understanding father-son relationship. All seven of the Moodys move to a forsaken little ranch because of father's health and there Little Britches learned how to face a situation squarely. It is a story of hard luck, of stubborn pride and of altruistic community endeavor; it tells of Little Britches' first earnings, his interrupted schooling, his friendship with the Indian, Two Dog, of all his accidents, culminating in nine broken toes, and of his ambition to be accepted in a man's world. Without the artificiality of other more eccentric domestic chronicles, this is factual family material without any cloying softness.
