Estrella negra, brillante amanecer (Black Star, Bright Dawn)by Scott O'Dell
Bright Dawn could not believe it when her father asked her to take his place in the 1,000-mile Iditarod dogsled race through Alaska. She knew she would have to count on Black Star, her part-husky, part-wolf lead dog. But soon Bright Dawn was depending on Black Star for not only the race but also for her life!
