Description

After the death of his master, Turk is sent to a faraway farm to finish his sheep-dog training. But his longing for 'Old David' and familiar fields is so powerful that he runs away and tries to find his way home again.

He encounters many adventures and varied companions on the way until at last, barely alive, he arrives home . . .
