This is the one book I completely remember reading in childhood - it was a wonderful story and I highly recommend it to any parent wanting a "clean" and very engaging book for their child - I think age 10 is a perfect age to read this book. I remember I cried, laughed and really felt like I was there.

The courageous, heartwarming story of three runaway pets. Instinct told them the way home lay in the west. And so the doughty young Labrador retriever, the rougish bull terrior and the indomitable Siamese set out through the Canadian wilderness. Separately, they would soon have died. But, together, the house pets face starvation, exposure and wild forest animals to make their way home to the family they love. . . .

This wonderful book formed the basis for the film "Homeward Bound." I'm reading it again before putting on the shelf with my posted books, and you will certainly enjoy reading it before passing it on to a child.

First publised in the early 1960s this carefully researched account of the actual, dangerous, almost unbeliveable journey of 2 dogs and a cat in search of their family. Considered one of the best animal stories ever written. A perennial favorite.
