From the Inside Flap:

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. But, 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 great children's stories of all time--and has been popular ever since its debut in 1961.

From the Back Cover:

"Captivating! A tale of charm, high drama and some revelations of the love existing between man and beast." — The New York Times
