Caleb in the Country By Jacob Abbott 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. We are delighted
to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out
of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to
facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves
to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been
scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff.
Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the
original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
