An incredible sled-dog race through the Alaskan wilderness??—??a stunning journey of discovery and survival.

Fueled by a passion for running dogs, Gary Paulsen entered the Iditarod??—??the eleven-hundred-and-eight-mile sled-dog race through the Alaskan wilderness??—??in dangerous ignorance and with a fierce determination. For seventeen days, he and his team of dogs endured blinding wind, snowstorms, frostbite, dog fights, moose attacks, sleeplessness, hallucinations??—??and the relentless push to go on. Winterdance is the enthralling account told by the "best author of man-against-nature adventures writing today" (Publishers Weekly).
