By Gary Paulsen 

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