Tale of Bygone Days

Ralph Moody lived between horse 'n buggy days and the first horseless carriages. He perfectly describes all the hard work it took to be a farmer, and the ups and downs of family relationships. Entertaining, educational and heartwarming.

Book 3 is awesome.

The narrator did a superb job with Granddad. Sakes Alive, it's is a good series. Can't wait to start the next book. My husband and I listen to a segment every night before bed. Great way to wind down for the night.
