Liam and I have been reading aloud from Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers by Ralph Moody. It is a terrific book for boys....or girls who want to know how real men behave in the face of adversity. In current society, where gender-confusion abounds and our lilly-livered president is more concerned about going green than red-white-and blue, we could all use a dose of the courage and character presented in the Little Britches series.
"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful." -- CS Lewis
