The shadows grew long, and the sun dropped in the sky. The group continued to travel, anxious to get as many miles as possible away from the city. Suddenly, Smokey's ears perked up, pointing straight ahead. In the distance, a group of soldiers approached, their horses at a gallop. 'Quick, Thomas,' Joel said in an excited voice. 'Pull off the road, and let's get these babies in the compartment!' When trouble comes to Bethlehem, Thomas and his family know that they can always count on their faithful companion: Smokey, their gentle draft horse. After the brutal decree of King Herod, Smokey will be asked to carry the load once again. Thomas's father and uncle devise a brilliant plan to rescue Thomas's younger brothers, David and Caleb. But the road to safety is filled with hazards of all sorts. When faced with trouble and unthinkable loss, will the family's faith be able to carry them through? Find more about their adventures in Smokey and the Great Escape.
