Little Britches by Ralph Moody
The first in the series of autobiographical works by Ralph Moody should be required reading in our schools. Instead of learning how racist America is, it tells a true story of a boy having adulthood suddenly thrust upon him when he loses his father. This is not a collection of complaints about the unfairness of life but is instead a prime example of youthful entrepreneurship, industriousness and drive.
This was a time before social welfare programs existed in America yet one hard-working lad accepted his mantle of family responsibility. Books following in the series by Mr. Moody continue with his character of accepting challenges head on – and succeeding. Great for young minds.
This type of inspiration would serve the youth of today well
Being raised in the 1950's, it hit home as my family was large and had little money. My hardships paled in comparison to what burdens Mr. Moody faced while still in his tender years.
