Wonderful account of growing up on a ranch in the early twentieth century. It follows Ralph's adventures as he learns about ranching, working hard and training horses. It emphasizes the development of character in a gentle non-preachy manner also. My two boys really enjoyed having this read aloud to them and we have acquired the rest of the series to see what happens next.
