Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers is an autobiographical account of Ralph Moody's (1898–1982) early life in the vicinity of Littleton, Colorado. This is the first book in the very popular series on Moody's life. This book has been in print continuously since 1950.[ citation needed]

One valued lesson passed on by Moody is the importance of water rights and the profound challenges these can have on a community.

This book spans the years from 1906 to 1910. Moody was eight when his father moved to Colorado, and eleven when his father died.

The book was the basis for the 1970 Disney film The Wild Country. [2]
