The Droving Lad by Kathleen Fidler11-year-old Colin is a cattle drover in the Scottish Highlands. It is 1813, and he is allowed to go to the Falkirk Tryst for the very first time. The long journey to Falkirk is packed with excitement and danger, but Colin's relief at arriving soon turns to horror when he realizes that their prize bull, Torcull the Black, has been stolen. Can Colin find Torcull in time to sell him at the fair, and more importantly, can he rescue Torcull from the thieves without endangering his own life and that of his friend?
'As well as all the thrills and spills, this is also a story with a very interesting and authentic background. The details of the cattle droving are fascinating and the journey can be followed on any map. This is a thrilling story. The pace and excitement is maintained right up to the last chapter. Well worth reading.'
