Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Photographer Shanon transports her readers to Alaska and the start of the Jr. Iditarod. The race is a shorter version of the major Iditarod race, 150 miles versus 1049 miles, but not easy. These teenage boys and girls face the same hazards, freezing temperatures, and strenuous tasks as their adult counterparts. Her photographs show the animals, humans, and equipment, and are augmented with a map of the course, a list of the mandatory gear a racer must carry, and definitions of mushing terminology. The photographs clearly show the beauty and vastness of the race terrain. A good introduction to the sport.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-7An interesting, informative look at the Junior Iditarod Sled Dog Race, in which mushers between the ages of 14 and 17 compete in a two-day version of the race. Ted Wood's Iditarod Dream (Walker, 1996) is a photo-essay about Dusty Whittemore, the 1995 Jr. Iditarod Race winner. Shahan focuses more on going step-by-step (or paw-by-paw) through the race itself with background information on the original serum race to Nome in 1925. Where the book really shines is in its superb full-color photography, stunning layouts, torn-page borders, and snowy endpapers. Visually, it's a masterpiece. Children will find the subject fascinating, and the presentation pleasing. Regardless of local weather, Dashing Through the Snow makes winter alluring, at least from the vantage point of an armchair and a roaring fire.Mollie Bynum, formerly at Chester Valley Elementary School, Anchorage, AK
