Father and I Were Ranchers

Ralph Moody

In 1906 eight year-old Ralph Moody moves with his family from New Hampshire to a Colorado ranch for his father’s health.

Ralph’s friends, Hi, Two Dog and the blue-roan cowhorse Sky High, give Little Britches all the learning and excitement a boy can dream of. He’ll need it as the adventures Ralph faces will have to equip him to take his ailing father’s place when the time comes....
