Publisher's Summary

Little Willy has a big job to do. When his grandfather falls ill, it is up to Willy alone to save their farm from the tax collector. So he enters the National Dogsled Race, where he must beat the Indian Stone Fox and his five beautiful Samoyed dogs.
©1980, 1984 John Reynolds Gardiner (P)2003, 2006 HarperCollins Publishers

Critic Reviews

"Gardiner's description of the race and sudden climax (based on legend) is fast-paced and enveloping." (School Library Journal)
"To B.D. Wong's credit, he narrates each of Gardiner's stories in a unique manner. For Stone Fox, Wong narrates with quiet reverence, respecting the power of the story and the bond among boy and dog and grandfather without imposing himself into the relationships." (AudioFile)

Story of Love and Dedication

Just FYI - this book has some adult topics. There is a depressed grandfather, taxes to be paid, and death. A young boy facing these difficulties on his own. It is a story of what one will do for another.

Brilliantly Written

I love the simple but brilliantly written story. It takes me back to being a child. Every time I read or listen to this story I see my dad smiling at me. A truly remarkable man who I miss every day. I love you Dad.
