Publisher's Summary

Victoria Secord, a 14-year-old Alaskan dogsled racer, loses her way on a routine outing with her dogs. With food gone and temperatures dropping, her survival and that of her dogs and the mysterious boy she meets in the woods is entirely up to her.

The author Terry Lynn Johnson is a musher herself, and her crackling writing puts listeners at the reins as Victoria and Chris experience setbacks, mistakes, and small triumphs in their wilderness adventure.

enjoyed by adults and child alike

A captivating story with a brave and relatable heroine who saves the day (and the helpless male city slicker) with her wilderness wisdom. Heart warming.

Gripping children’s tale

There are some great elements in this book. It’s nice to have a tough and knowledgeable female protagonist. And the story is very good, I even if it does borrow heavily from jack london and Gary Paulson. The dialogue is a weak point. The characterisation of the poor helpless male antagonist is very superficial. The main disappointment is the way the novel dribbles out at the end with valley-girl Americanism. OMG! Frustrating much.
