Loaded with tension, excitement and stoutheartedness, the young and the young at hearts will keep their fingers crossed for the little hero’s safety and success.

Caleb might only be 10 years old, but with a burning determination that cannot be stopped by anything or anyone, he is willing to do everything—literally everything, especially for his family. Staying on his grandparent’s farm, he awakens in the middle of the night by an unusual sound. He gets up and goes outside only to see a truck on the farm with three men rounding up his grandparent’s cattle onto the truck to steal.

Caleb must do something to save the cattle from the thieves. His initial impulse was to go on the attack. However, wanting to win is one thing, but losing and facing the consequences is a very real possibility, especially when his life is at stake. Nonetheless, alone and unarmed, he attempts to prove his bravery and dexterity and takes the risky task of stopping the crooks by himself.

Will Caleb succeed in saving his grandparent’s livestock? Readers can find out in this nail-biting children’s book about a gutsy hero who bravely deals with danger face to face in Caleb and the Night of the Cattle Theft.
