Iditarod Sled Dog Race?158 miles from Lake Lucille to Yentna and back. Dusty is an excellent model of a young Alaskan athlete, and the text shows his concern for his dogs, his "trusted partners," and his love for the sport. A brief history of the original Iditarod plus two maps, one of the adult race route and the larger one of the Junior Sled Dog Race, begin the essay. Unfortunately, some of this introductory information is incorrect, but the errors do not deter readers from seeing what it's like to be involved in dog mushing firsthand.

The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual long-distance sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome, entirely within the US state of Alaska. Mushers and a team of 14 dogs, of which at least 5 must be on the towline at the finish line, cover the distance in 8–15 days or more. The Iditarod began in 1973 as an event to test the best sled dog mushers and teams but evolved into today's highly competitive race.

Follows the adventures of fifteen-year-old Dusty Whittemore and his skilled sled dogs during a 158-mile competition across the frozen lakes and windswept woods of Alaska, introducing readers to the training, dangers, and courage associated with the Jr. Iditarod. About the Author: Ted Wood has published a number of highly praised photoessays for Walker & Company, including Iditarod Dream; Spirit of the Maya; Two Lands, One Heart; and Ghosts of the West Coast.

A nicely written story about the boy who won the Junior Iditarod race. His training, schooling, and family life are positively portrayed and he is a find role model for people of all ages who want to work with animals. Drive, determination, initiative are shown here.
