Editorial Reviews

Martha Topol
This book for elementary age children and up serves as a fascinating and fairly comprehensive introduction to dog sledding. . . the stories help give the reader a sense of what it might feel like to actually own and run a team of dogs. It sounds exhilarating. This book would make a good first purchase for anyone interested in taking a look inside this demanding and invigorating sport. -- ForeWord Magazine
