Great book. This began my youthful stint of reading the pets-in-the-wild genre. Incredible Journey, A Nose for Trouble etc...

Pretty good youth book. I swear I read it before the date this claims it was published, but maybe not.

Great book for middle school boys! If anyone liked Call of the Wild, you will love this book!

Recommends it for: dog lovers
To be honest, although the writing style is a tad dated, I really liked this book. It is a dog against nature kind of tale and I was drawn through the story to the end. There was little romance or violence, but enough conflict to keep you reading on--and rooting for Buster, who has to survive a major winter storm in the sheep country of North Dakota. We see this overgrown and perhaps a bit flabby city dog grow into a magnificent canine who retains just enough dog to make him truly a hero.
