The Iditarod is the famed eleven-hundred-mile-long dogsled race across Alaska—and now Bright Dawn must unexpectedly take her father’s place in the competition. It’s exciting, but sometimes terrifying as well—for example, when a moose appears in her path in the midst of the brutally frigid conditions.
And as the journey goes on, it will be Bright Dawn’s dog, Black Star, who must not only lead her through the snow, but lead her out of danger…
“A splendid, vividly written adventure.”—Kirkus Reviews
