"Most young girls' experiences never involve hunting bearded seals on the ice, even within the Alaskan Eskimo culture. In Scott O'Dell's gripping novel, Bright Dawn is an exception. In her father's eyes, she became his son's replacement ever since her brother drowned. When Bright Dawn is 18 years old, her father, recently injured, insists that she take his place in the Iditarod, the famous Alaskan dogsled race covering more than a thousand miles between Anchorage and Nome. Unflinching, yet trembling in her mukluks, she faces her challenge head-on....an intense, suspenseful, clearly written adventure story that's sure to capture the imagination of young readers and take them for a blustery ride."

The Narrator made me feel like I was in the book.
Black Star was my favorite. He was the leader of the dogs and was very brave. He never gave up.
