Luath, Tao, and Bodger are three house pets, a Labrador retriever, a Siamese cat, and a bull terrier. They want to be with their family, the Hunters, but they are on a trip to England. Meanwhile, their friend, John Longridge, is taking care of them. One day, Longridge goes to Heron Lake, over two hundred miles away. Luath, the Labrador retriever, decides to journey to the Hunters' house, and the other two follow him. The way there is across miles of remote wilderness, and on the way, they encounter many dangers. Will they reach their destination? Or will they get eaten by wild animals? I liked this book, but the beginning was a bit boring. I recommend it to anyone who likes books about animals.
