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. (Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book flows very well. Every sentence ties in to the next and every paragraph ties in with the next Scott O'Dell, like he often does, has a girl main character, natives that play important roles, and exciting adventures. This book is mainly about action and changes. His writing can put on a "film" in your mind of what's happening in the story.
If you have not yet read this book, than you should. I would recommend it to the children 8-12. It's a great story for animal lovers and adventurous ones. Adults might appreciate the story but it is clearly meant for the younger generation.
It takes an incredible combination of factors to win this thousand-mile race across arctic wastes; knowledge of huskies and use of all supplies, wisdom in determining when to stop and when to continue; experience with human nature since other contestants may use foul means or sly tricks to leave competitors behind. And never underestimate the forces of vicious and capricious Nature: weather, topography, wild animals.
Bright star learns to trust her beloved dog, Black Star (part Husky-part wolf) for many things, including her very life. But can she trust herself--her knowledge of dog teams and which of the entrants to believe. Can she expect compassion or help from the others, who are just as determined to win the prize for their village or city? She is not the only female in the race, but will the women prove more kindly or vulnerable?
Bright Star learns much from this race, especially about her worst enemy: Fear. This brave heroine is torn between Eskimo superstition and her modern education. Is there place for good sportsmanship in the Iditarod? This exciting tale of survival in the Alaskan wilderness will captivate readers of all ages.
