More About the Author


Gloria Repp grew up in the Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Northwest; it was there she learned a love for wilderness that pervades her writing. She has taught creative writing, worked as an editor, and written books for children, teens, and adults. In addition to wilderness adventures, she enjoys flying in single-engine airplanes and has a particular fondness for owls and frogs.

Each family member has played a unique part in the writing of her books. Her eldest son teaches on the Big Island of Hawaii, and she has made trips with him to lava tubes and Mauna Kea's volcano; she values his insights on the natural sciences and on godly scholarship.

With her Seattle son, daughter-in-law, and grandson, she shares an interest in people and music and journeys of discovery, especially on the Olympic Peninsula. She relies on them for a reality check of plot problems.

Her daughter, who lives in Virginia, is a competent resource in matters of sewing, baking, and midwifery. The two cats who have chosen to grace her daughter's apartment have sufficient character to appear in stories from time to time and often take part in book discussions.

At home, her husband, a pilot and aircraft mechanic, provides valuable input for the aviation elements in her books, entry to the fascinating New Jersey Pine Barrens, and a strong, supporting shoulder. Although she likes traveling to research her novels, she thinks that the best part of every journey is coming home.

This book tells the exciting story of Steve and Liz Bailey, missionaries to the Alaskan territory before statehood. Mik-Shrok is their lead sled dog. Together they have many exciting adventures as they adjust to life in the far North and grow to love the Eskimo people with whom they came to share the Gospel. My family and I are looking forward to the next book in this series.

My son read this book for his book report and he LOVED it! He still cannot stop talking about it. He is now finishing the sequel and asking for the third book in the series. He says he now wants to live in Alaska as a missionary! Highly recommended!!

My son read this book as a part of our home-school curriculum, and he really enjoyed it. I assigned him to do a book review instead of the normal book report, and here is what he wrote: "'Mik-Shrok' is about two missionaries, Steve and Liz, who go to Alaska to live with the Eskimos and lead them to Jesus. Along the way, Steve builds his own dog-sled team with the lead dog being Mik-Shrok. Steve and Liz realize their faith in God with this verse coming to mind: 'Have not I commanded thee' Joshua 1:9. I really enjoyed "Mik-Shrok" because it's about my favorite breed of dog in the world, the husky. Also, I enjoyed the dangerous elements of the book and the faith-based theme. I highly recommend this book to young Christians who want to strengthen their faith."

Lovely story of a faithful and brave couple who take on the calling of being missionaries in Alaska. Am reading with my 7-year old son, and we are thoroughly enjoying their story of faith and fellowship as they live and work with the Eskimos. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a chapter book for kids that tells a great story and incorporates a realistic relationship with God and practical faith in this gorgeous setting of undeveloped Alaska!

Format: Paperback
It tells the life of Steve and Liz Bailey and their friendship with Victor and Gus. Their lead sled dog is Mik-Shrok. The book is interesting because it describes three different villages and their friends at each one. The book shows that God answers prayer.

Also loved it!
We bought the next two in the series and are giving them as gifts. We felt the characters were developed enough to enjoy reading about them and to care. These books are filled with action.
