DESCRIPTION:“‘They’re holding White Ruff for ransom,’ Chet’s father said.’They want a thousand dollars.’
Meanwhile the big collie awoke.Noise drummed against his ears, the roar of a motor and the ramble of rolling wheel.The box containing Ruff went flying through the air, crashed and rolled over and over. Ruff jumped clear of the blazing gasoline. He was free!
But where was he? Where were Chet and his father? How could he get home?” (from the back cover.)
