The Incredible Journey
by Sheila Burnford
The classic Canadian story of three pets - a Labrador retriever, a bull terrier, and a Siamese cat - making their way home through nearly 300 miles of forbidding wilderness. Encounters with wild animals, treacherous waters, and unfriendly humans abound, but the animals' loyalty, friendship, and concern for each other lift the spirits. Throughout, they remain wholeheartedly dog- and cat-like; the realism of the story captivates like no other.
An incredible adventure and an incredible book, with one of the most emotional endings of all time.
