From the Publisher
Annotation A biography of Togo, the lead dog of the Alaskan dogsled team which made the historic 1925 journey across Alaska to retrieve medicine during a diphtheria epidemic. The amazing 674 mile journey made by the dogsled team and their human leader, Leonhard Seppala, became the inspiration of the Alaskan Iditarod. Illustrated with oil paintings.
First Line Leonhard Seppala shook his head. He carefully watched every new pup, hoping to see that special one--a pup that would grow into the prefect dog to lead his sled racing team.
Editors Note Although originally not meant to be a sled dog, Togo's determined trainer worked with him to harness his energy and make him one of the fastest dogs ever known, so when the diphtheria outbreak occurred in Alaska, it was to Togo they turned to get the serum across the Arctic in time.
Editors Note 3 Togo wasn't meant to be a sled dog. He was too feisty and independent to make a good team member, let alone a leader. But Togo is determined, and when his trainer, Leonhard Seppala, gives him a chance, he soon becomes one of the fastest sled dogs in history! His skills are put to the ultimate test, though, when Seppala and his team are called on to make the now-famous run across the frozen Arctic to deliver the serum that will save Alaska from a life-threatening outbreak of diphtheria. In the style of Akiak, winner of the Irma S. and James H. Black Award for Excellence in Children's Literature, along with five state awards, Robert J. Blake's detailed, carefully researched oil paintings complete the story of the adventure that inspired the internationally famous Iditarod race.
