Winterdance: Fine madness of Alaskan dog-racing

Author(s): Gary Paulsen


An incredible, breathtaking true adventure of Alaskan dog-racing and of the mesmerising Arctic landscape Gary Paulsen was in his forties, an internationally famous children's writer. Then he was overtaken by his passion - a passion for Alaskan dog-racing and a passion for the wild, beautiful landscape of the Arctic. Winterdance is the story of this passion. It is a powerful, almost unbelievable adventure, told with humour, pathos, vitality and excitement. Beautiful, funny and laconic, it is a book about men and dogs and their souls. 'An unputdownable celebration of the human spirit' Sunday Express
