When we talk about our dreams and ambitions it can often be shrugged off as a mere fantasy and not taken seriously, particularly when our goals are set to very high standards. That dream may be acting on Broadway, becoming a celebrity Hollywood actor, a Grammy-winning pop star, a star quarterback for the NFL, or even President of the United States. We are told that we can achieve anything we want as long as we put our heart and soul into it. This is true, but with perseverance also comes adversity and discouragement when patience runs thin.
Pursuit of a Dream is a story about an ambitious young boy with a dream of becoming a professional stock car driver. Eight-year-old Caleb Lockhardt has one goal in life, racing stock cars. He is determined to live that dream no matter what, but how does he do that when no one in his family has ever been involved in auto racing? Caleb's brother Jared is quick to point that out and even their father, while loving and supportive, doesn't take Caleb's aspiration serious at first...that is until he sees his son win his first go-kart race. As Caleb grows older, his desire to win clouds his focus and judgment, and he struggles with the realization that living his dream is going to require a lot more patience, discipline, and sacrifice than he had anticipated.
Readers will find that Pursuit of a Dream has much more to offer than just auto racing. It is a story about the strength of family unity, love, perseverance through adversity, and never giving up on your dreams.
Pursue your dreams...and never look back.
