The Old Trails West "is the story of the great legendary routes that bound a wild land into a nation. The Oregon Trail, El Camino Real, the Butterfield Overland Mail, the Santa Fe Trail--these are names that conjure up tales of the past. This book recounts the true stories behind the trails: what impelled their exploration, determined their paths, how they contributed to the settling of the West, and ... the adventures ... of the brave men who made them." You will get to know "the Spanish conquistadores, explore Arizona with Father Kino--'the Padre on Horseback'--search for the Seven Gold Cities of Cíbola, follow the traplines of Jim Bridger and the mountain men, invade Spanish California with General Stephen Watts Kearny and the Army of the West. You will cross hostile Indian country with the Mormon Battalion, surmount snow-filled mountain passes and scorching deserts to dig for gold with the Forty-Niners, carry the mail with the Pony Express, and discover the depth of Indian loyalty with Lewis and Clark."

Mary Emma & company by Ralph Moody( Book )
9 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in English and held by 349 libraries worldwide
The protagonist, Mary Emma Moody, widowed mother of six, has taken her family east in 1912 to begin a new life. Her son, Ralph, then thirteen, recalls how the Moodys survive that first bleak winter in a Massachusetts town. Money and prospects are lacking, but not so faith and resourcefulness. "Mother" in Little Britches and Man of the Family, Mary Emma emerges fully as a character in this book, and Ralph, no longer called "Little Britches," comes into his own. The family's run-ins with authority and with broken furnaces in winter are evocative of a full and warm family life. Mary Emma & Company continues the Moody saga that started in Colorado with Little Britches and runs through Man of the Family and The Home Ranch. All these titles have been reprinted as Bison Books, as has The Fields of Home, in which Ralph leaves the Massachusetts town for his grandfather's farm in Maine

Come on Seabiscuit! by Ralph Moody( Sound Recording )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 333 libraries worldwide
Who would have believed that a knobby-kneed little colt called Seabiscuit would become one of the most celebrated racehorses of all time? Although Seabiscuit was the grandson of the legendary Man O' War, he was neither handsome nor graceful. His head was too big, his legs were too short, and his gallop was awkward. During the depths of the Great Depression, Seabiscuit won against incredible odds and uplifted the hearts of Americans from the streets to the White House. In this book Ralph Moody recounts the tale of the plucky horse who refused to quit, the down-on-his-luck jockey who didn't let horrendous accidents keep him out of the saddle, and the taciturn trainer who brought out the best in both
