The Home Ranch, originally published in 1956, is the third book in the Little Britches series.

Book descriptionEdit

From the 2001 audio book:
Ralph "Little Britches" Moody must take on responsibilities as the man of the family after his father's death. During the summer of his twelfth year he works on a cattle ranch in the shadow of Pikes Peak, earning "man's wages" of a dollar a day.

It's a summer packed with enough action to fill most adult lives, let alone that of a young boy. Little Britches is tested against seasoned cowboys on the range and in the corral. He drives cattle through a raging dust storm, eats his weight in flapjacks, and falls in love with a blue outlaw horse...
