Balto was only three years old when he helped carry serum across Alaska from Nenana to Nome to save the town's children from diphtheria.

This was definitely an interesting read and one that I found I was caught up in for since almost no one knows much about Balto's later years besides he was a dog who brought the serum to Nome. From there Patricia Chargot takes us onto the whirlwind years that followed the year of triumph for Balto - the bad years and the good years.

The author did a great job to include pronunciation for some of the Norwegian names although one or two were left out that should have been included with pronunciation. Furthermore even with as much fiction was included there were parts of educational history that introduced us to a world that we couldn't imagine from the husky breeder to a serum run than to nickelodeons and dime museums before hitting a city that would open their zoos to a sled-dog team.

The only reason why this book doesn't rate any higher for me is the fact that even though the author is suppose to be writing about Balto I think she spent a lot more time on the spurned Togo. Don't get me wrong for I enjoyed learning about Toga but from the author I got the feeling that she didn't care about her subject but would rather give herself to Togo instead but was made to only imply to him to appease the crowd taste for Balto - i.e. we are given the sire of Togo but nowhere is made any mention of Balto's parentage even though he is the main dog of the story. Rather a tasteless continuation of a squabble that I am sure the dogs didn't care about but much rather suffered since of the sides involved in man's emotions.

Otherwise it is a good read and even somewhat emotional. For those into adventure, sled dogs or even Balto I would truly recommend at least one reading. ( )
