    Story
    "1900 Colorado Ranching"

    This story takes place in 1906 when the family moved from New Hampshire to Colorado. The story is mostly about the relationship between father and son, and the lessons the father gives on being a man. The story about ranching and farming and the problems with lack of water, weather problem and mostly great neighbors is a familiar story to anyone who ranches or farms. It is a nice pleasant story with some humor, sadness and the trials of starting up in a new school. Makes for a good story to read between more serious reading or as a break from a hard week at work. Good family story. Cameron Beierle does a good job narrating the story. This is the first book in a series.

    "A wonderful story well read"

    Perfect for the long road trip from Missouri to Alberta. Kids looked up places from the story in the atlas as we traveled. And the reading was clear and well done.

    "Great Story"

    Love the story but did not love the reader. As one reviewer said, it was very distracting for the reader to accent incorrect syllables in words. He also often placed emphasis on unimportant words like "not" and "and" and "or".

    "It's one awesome book!"

    I'm a ten year old boy and I just finished the whole Little Britches series. I like that it had a lot of adventure in it and that it's about a boy and his life. I also think that Cameron Beierle did a great job narrating.

    "Family Favorite"

    We listened to this as a family in the evenings with our 5 children (ages 1-10). Everyone agreed the story is one of our favorites we have listened too.

    "Interesting but very long. "

    The narrator was good. The story was wholesome but very long. My kids liked it but it took us forever to get through.

    "Excellent"

    Excellent story. Full of character building. Excellent reader. Only negative is the cursing used multiple times by the rancher men - damn, hell, and taking God's name in vain.

    "Excellent book!!!"

    These books are some of our very favorite! They teach the importance of telling the truth, the value of hard work, and are a fabulous picture of life out west a hundred years ago! Just FYI- There are some curse words and taking the Lords name in vain that I skipped when we read them a few years ago. Soooo worth the listen!!! We just tell our peeps that if you don't hear us say it you shouldn't.
