Bright Dawn proves herself to be a strong, courageous heroine--crossing rivers, mountain ranges, and vast stretches of frozen tundra--with her team of dogs, including the lead Black Star. While the rush of wind and relentless, blinding stretches of ice are exhilarating, the dangers involved make Bright Dawn realize that it's not only the race, but her life that she's entrusting to her team of dogs. O'Dell, author of the Newbery Award-winning Island of the Blue Dolphins, has created an intense, suspenseful, clearly written adventure story that's sure to capture the imagination of young readers and take them for a blustery ride.

Bartok starts working for the cannery but does not enjoy it. He is challenged to enter the Iditarod. Whilst Ikuma is a checkpoint along the 1,179 mile route, no one from Ikuma has ever won the race. What follows is an exceptionally well-written, realistic experience on the Iditarod trail with Bright Dawn. Yes, she is the one who accepts the challenge. See how Bright Dawn converses with her competitors, 'handles' the wildlife along the way, learns how to build shelters, fights through all weathers and more.
We used this book in our homeschool with our teenager. Both of us absolutely LOVED the book. A great read and one I would highly recommend with some good life lessons intertwined. I was not required to write a review but chose to do so. Thanks, Liz
Takes you thru the hardship and the stress that the dogs and drivers are under, its not an easy race.
Its a youngster's book as well as a quick read for an adult.
We have several other of Scott O'Dell's books, I think my favourite is Island of the Blue Dolphins.
