    One thought on “Caleb's Choice”

    1. This is my first book I've read, that is written by G. Clifton Wisler---and I'm impressed.The story is about a boy named Caleb, who lives during the Civil War. His family has to split up to survive their sudden money loss. Caleb is sent to his grandmother's farm, where he makes new friendships, strengthens his muscles from work, and he decides on an important decision to change his life.Caleb finds out about the Underground Railroad, slave traders, and auctioning blocks for black slaves. Being a [...]

    2. My students had read an excerpt of this book as part of our unit on slavery. That one-pager was enough to peak my interest, and lucky for me we had a copy in our school library. Wisler takes a young man from privilege and has him questioning his moral compass at a time in our history when adults were drawing a line in the sand over slavery. There were enough twists, turns, and superstition that kept me reading long after class was over. Looking forward to reading "Red Cap" by Wisler about Civil [...]

    3. This is a great book that deals with the different viewpoints that existed during the time of slavery. Young Caleb has grown up in an environment that always considered slavery to be a normal thing, yet when he finds himself living life a little rougher then he's used to, he starts to realize what the real world consists of. When Caleb has to decide if he's against or for slavery, he discovers that things are always cut and dry. How high to do you stand for what you believe in? A great read.

    4. This book is a historical fiction novel set before the Civil War. After Caleb's life is saved by a runaway slave, he has to decide if he will risk his life to help other slaves along the Underground Railroad.I used this for Civil War Literature Circles and the kids really liked it, I would recommend it for the upper grades.

    5. The author gives just enough detail to draw you into the story. It's about a young boy who is raised in the slave holding south and the moral decision he will eventually have to make about slavery as his rose-colored-glasses are removed. I enjoyed it and would recomend it, especially to the teenage audience it is written for.

    6. This is one if my favorite childhood books. It's an amazingly written book about the difficult moral decisions that were pondered during the Civil War. Love it.

    7. I think that this book was aa reat book.If you really like sad books you would want to read it but it is awesome to read books like these.
