Item Details

Life is hard for Yorkshire miner's son Joe Carraclough, who is beaten at school by a his teacher, his only consolation is his collie Lassie. It gets worse: when the mine is decommissioned, his father, Sam, is forced to sell the dog to the duke, who owns the local estate. The Duke's servant, Hynes, scares the dog, who keeps running back to his young friend, so the Carracloughs have to keep returning her, until the Duke moves to the Scottish Highlands for the holiday season. Lassie escapes, embarking on a desperate journey home to the Carracloughs, with daunting Glasgow dogcatchers in pursuit and an encounter with a circus performer. It looks like a miracle is needed, by Christmas, for Lassie to reach the safety of home.
