Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sunday Tribune
"[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life."—Chicago Sunday Tribune
New York Times
"An affectionate portrait of ranch-town folk who knew how to help without humiliating, and a warm but ungushing tribute to a remarkable woman who deplored her inability to give her children everything, yet gave them much."—New York Times
San Francisco Chronicle
"Man of the Family is everything that Little Britches was—a heart-warming, frank, com-pletely delightful narrative. Some readers may even like it better."—San Francisco Chronicle
New York Herald Tribune
"Mr. Moody remembers, and can put on paper, the terrifying passion of a small boy's heart, where there is no routine, and every victory and every disappointment is oversize and overwhelming."—New York Herald Tribune
Christian Science Monitor
"A heart-warming book. . . . Little Britches' fierce loyalty to his mother is matched only by his practical consideration for his brothers and sisters."—Christian Science Monitor
Sterling North
"Ralph Moody’s books should be read aloud in every family circle in America"—Sterling North
