Clever Storytelling!

Why would a modern-day suburban homemaker get so enthralled by an account of farm life in Nebraska one hundred years ago? It must be because the author Ralph Moody is a storyteller extraordinaire! His characters come alive, and the word pictures are vividly in my mind's eye. I love all his books and can hardly wait to start the next one!!

So good!!

These stories bring to life a time people today can't even imagine on their own. Teaches about animals, money, and true integrity. The stories inspire doing more today.

You couldn't ask for a better Narrator!

Cameron Beierle has to be one of the best Narrators I have ever heard. He does all the different voices so well you can picture the characters that match the voices. The kids and I have been enjoying these series so much that at the end of each book they get really upset when they think there is no more.

Moving Memoir of a Harvest Crew

When Bud Moody is thrown off the train near McCook, Nebraska with one thin dime to his name, his prospects don't look good. He lands a job with the meanest tenant farmer on the divide, but pity for the family and loyalty to a rag tag harvest crew lead him to risk everything to succeed. The Dry Divide transports readers to the end of the horse powered harvest in a triumphant homage to the work of the farmers and ranchers of the Midwest.
