Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"The Iditarod, a race that's run / a thousand miles to Nome. / A husky named Kiana / who made the trail her home. / A man, a team, Alaska bred. / Adventure was their creed. / They would struggle 'til / the bitter end / to claim this mighty deed." This children's picture book spans 1,049 icy miles but never loses sight of an extraordinary canine. Author Shelley Gill knows her subject firsthand; she was only the fifth woman in history to complete the grueling Iditarod.

    Realistic Portrayal!

    After meeting a winner of an Iditerad Race and his lead dog, I immediately knew that I needed a book, Fiction or Non-fiction, for our grandchildren to read about this amazing race! I found this Juvenile Literature for them, which portrays an actual race and focuses upon the race dog's experience, too. Highly Recommended for ages 7 - 3 years.

    Kiana's race

    I liked this book because I love dogs. My favorite part is when I saw the dogs' booties. The exciting part is when the race started.
