By Betty Fasig on August 31, 2005
Format: Paperback
Mary Bernard Shay's, The Land Of The Midnight Sun, is a story about Alaska and a young Innuit boy who lives along the Yukon River in 1877. His dream is to race his dog sled team in the biggest race in Alaska, the five hundred mile Idinerod. The young boy is fifteen years old and along with his lead dog, Fang, they enter the race. It is a race of distance and endurance across the frozen country.

Ms Shay's book describes the beauty of the still unspoiled north. The young boy, Nanuck matures into a young man, as the progress of civilization encroaches into the wilderness.

This is a delighful story for young and old alike.

" The Land Of The Midnight Sun" by Mary Bernard Shay is reviewed by Linda Pannett author of "Silent Killers."

"The Land Of The Midnight Sun" is such a beautiful book I couldn't stop reading it. I hated when the end came and wished for more.

The setting in Alaska with fifteen year old Nanuck captured my heart when he signed up for the dogsled race. His dream came true at last.

A heartwarming story for all to read Ms.Shay has captured what every reader wants. She is a fantastic writer who will go far in the writing world.

I highly recommend this book for all to read.
