Gary Paulsen has had a life as exciting as fiction!
Gary Paulsen, three-time Newbery Honor author, is no stranger to adventure. He has flown off the back of a dogsled and down a frozen waterfall to near disaster, and waited for a giant bear to seal his fate with one slap of a claw. He has led a team of sled dogs toward the Alaskan Mountain Range in an Iditarod -- the grueling, 1,180-mile dogsled race -- hallucinating from lack of sleep, but he determined to finish.
Here, in vivid detail, Paulsen recounts several of the remarkable experiences that shaped his life and inspired his award-winning writing.
According to PW , this ``autobiographical celebration of Paulsen's longtime love of dogsledding and sled dogs . . . blends deep introspection with fast-paced action and succeeds admirably on both levels.'' Ages 12-up.

#great could not be better
This book is amazing
What a joy to be able to share this book with my 6th grade students--so many lessons, sorrows and joys. I'm sorry I finished it. Just like the race, I want it to keep going forever. Thank you!
