Caleb in the Country - A Story for Children by Jacob Abbott

Originally published in 1852, this is a work of juvenile fiction by American author Jacob Abbott. He produced many works, most notably his 'Rollo' series, which aim to instruct young people in moral virtues as well as to keep them entertained. We are republishing this work with a brand new introductory biography of the author. Here is a prefatory notice from the book explaining its aims: The object of this little work, and of others of its family, which may perhaps follow, is, like that of the "Rollo Books," to furnish useful and instructive reading to young children. The aim is not so directly to communicate knowledge, as it is to develop the moral and intellectual powers,-to cultivate habits of discrimination and correct reasoning, and to establish sound principles of moral conduct. The "Rollo Books" embrace principally intellectual and moral discipline; "Caleb," and the others of its family, will include also religious training, according to the evangelical views of Christian truth which the author has been accustomed to entertain, and which he has inculcated in his more serious writings.
