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 …


'Turk the Border Collie' is a worthy successor to Flash the Sheep Dog, for no one quite equals Kathleen Fidler in the creation of dog personalities.'
