Instinct told them that the way home lay to the west. And so the doughty young Labrador retriever, the roguish bull terrier, and the indomitable Siamese set out through the Canadian wilderness. Separately, they would soon have died. Together, the three house pets faced starvation, exposure, and wild forest animals to make their way home to the family they love. The Incredible Journey is one of the most popular children’s stories of all time. 148 pages; paper. Proofreader’s note: The poem The Beasts is included in the front of the book. It seems to belittle man’s accountability to God.
