Volume 7 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.
Ralph Moody, just turned twenty, had only a dime in his pocket when he was put off a freight in western Nebraska. It was the 4th of July, 1919. Three months later he owned eight teams of horses and rigs to go with them. Everyone who worked with him shared in the prosperity, the widow whose wheat crop was saved and the group of misfits who formed a first-rate harvesting crew. But sometimes fickle Mother Nature and frail human nature made sure that nothing was easy. The tension between opposing forces never lets up!
