Balto gets way too much credit, and this book is no exception. It claims to be a true story, but I know a thing or two about sled dogs and the time when diphtheria struck Nome. Here's what really happened:

A dog named Togo was the real hero. He was the lead dog on the team that had to do twice as much work when the next person in the relay dropped out. He ran a total of 350 miles straight through the storms and across the treacherous ice. Close to where they would trade off the medicine to the final team, Balto's, the who sled team besides Togo and the musher were too tired to work anymore. Their eyelids froze, ice cut their paws, and they were exhausted. But Togo and the musher dropped the dogs off at a nearby home and Togo pulled the sled and the musher helped by going and running with the empty harnesses in his hand. Balto and his team ran the final 53 miles to Nome and got all of the glory, while Togo could never run again afterward. Balto should have some glory, but it is Togo who deserves at least 98 percent of it. Talk about bravery!
