    The year is 1925. It is sixty degrees below zero. The wind sweeps tons of snow over the deep-frozen Alaskan landscape. The nearest railhead is seven hundred miles away. Airplanes cannot fly. The way to Nome is blocked by a treacherous frozen sound, an icebound port, and mountains to the west. But there is a diphtheria epidemic in Nome. The children need serum from the outside world if they are to survive. Their only hope is a few chosen Eskimo drivers and their teams of dogs.

    Overall

    beautifully narrated and written. The history about the Alaskan natives and the wonderful dogs was awe-inspiring. I never knew of such deep commitment from a group of people and their dogs to exist. Touching, tear jearking, and awesome true story preserved for us. Now this wuld have been a history lesson worth sitting in class and taking notes! I enjoyed every second of this history rich and interesting book. A must read!
