Cassidy O’Callaghan is an intelligent, resourceful eleven-year-old whose father was killed in one of our many wars when she was less than a year old. She most wants a beagle and a father, but her mother won’t allow her to have a dog, and her mother isn’t interested in remarrying. So Cassidy makes do with a calico cat she chose because of its color similarity to beagles, and a father substitute in her mother’s kind and mentoring boyfriend.

Red Tackett is a small, independent farmer who long ago lost his wife and only son in a tragic accident. In Cassidy and her friend Laurie, he finds the joy so long missing from his heart even as Cassidy begins to look to him as a caring grandfather figure.

Red Tackett’s farm adjoins a country club. The richest members of the country club are globalist bailout recipients who work on Wall Street and utilize the club while they stay at their second or third homes for summer weekends. They expect the abundance and status of Wall Street wherever they go, and especially when they entertain their friends at the country club.

Because of modern golf clubs and golf balls, the country club golf course is now too short and too easy to be prestigious. So the rich members want to lengthen it and redesign it to professional standards. But the only way to lengthen their course is to acquire part of Red Tackett’s farm. He, however, refuses to sell as he wants to keep his farm large enough for independent sustainability for generations into the future.

Used to getting whatever they want, the rich bailout recipients turn to the federal government to help them take what they cannot buy. With a power combining both that which is illegal and that which should be illegal, they put Red Tackett in jeopardy and isolate him from his community’s support.

With her intelligence and maturity, Cassidy has straddled the world of youth and that of grownups. But helping the kindly farmer who has befriended her requires that she step fully into the adult world. Armed with a special bicycle, a moral compass, and a tenacious American spirit, Cassidy sets out to prove Red Tackett’s innocence. In so doing, her life is threatened by a Global Security Officer. But Cassidy has inherited the character of the father she never knew and the values of a nation once grounded in law, and she stands ready to match her wits against the wiles of those who would harm the innocent.
