Volume 3 of the Little Britches Series
"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.
Little Britches becomes the 'man' in his family after his father's early death, taking on the concomitant responsibilities as well as opportunities. During the summer of his twelfth year he works on a cattle ranch in the shadow of Pike's Peak, earning a dollar a day. Little Britches is tested against seasoned cowboys on the range and in the corral. He drives cattle through a dust storm, eats his weight in flapjacks, and falls in love with a blue outlaw horse. A must for any Ralph Moody fan!
