Having shaken the curse of Urumbu, Jack and Sheltie return to the old country. Injured in a traffic accident, Jack is laid up in a Genoa hospital. Sheltie goes on ahead to Rotterdam where he promptly gets lost.
This book gives a fascinating look at the “psychology” of a dog trying to avoid capture as he hunts doggedly for his master. It also tells the story of the extensive, persistent search Jack and his nephews make for Sheltie.
Unaccustomed to civilization, Sheltie faces danger at every turn. Several scrapes with death make this a real nail-biter!
