9781441871442: Black Star, Bright Dawn

They were a team – the young Eskimo girl and the white dog, part husky but mostly wolf – a team, yes, but in some ways Black Star was the leader. Bright Dawn never expected to compete in the Iditarod, the dogsled race that covers more than a thousand miles between Anchorage and Nome. But now she’s here, watching the trail skim by and her dogs running with their ears laid back, and she can’t imagine being anywhere else. But the perils are numerous: the blinding whiteouts, the moose who bars her path, and the ice…always the ice. From time to time Bright Dawn shares a camp with the veteran Oteg, who tells her how to run the race. But slowly Bright Dawn realizes she must run her race, not Oteg’s and that means relying on her lead dog, Black Star, not just for the race but for her life. “A fine novel, exciting.” – Horn Book, starred review “Superb…exciting to read and infused with dignity.” – Publishers Weekly

Review:

Most young girls' experiences never involve hunting bearded seals on the ice, even within the Alaskan Eskimo culture. In Scott O'Dell's gripping novel, Bright Dawn is an exception. In her father's eyes, she became his son's replacement ever since her brother drowned. When Bright Dawn is 18 years old, her father, recently injured, insists that she take his place in the Iditarod, the famous Alaskan dogsled race covering more than a thousand miles between Anchorage and Nome. Unflinching, yet trembling in her mukluks, she faces her challenge head-on.

Bright Dawn proves herself to be a strong, courageous heroine--crossing rivers, mountain ranges, and vast stretches of frozen tundra--with her team of dogs, including the lead Black Star. While the rush of wind and relentless, blinding stretches of ice are exhilarating, the dangers involved make Bright Dawn realize that it's not only the race, but her life that she's entrusting to her team of dogs. O'Dell, author of the Newbery Award-winning Island of the Blue Dolphins, has created an intense, suspenseful, clearly written adventure story that's sure to capture the imagination of young readers and take them for a blustery ride. (Ages 9 to 12)

From the Inside Flap:

"A splendid, vividly written adventure."
THE KIRKUS REVIEWS
Bright Dawn was a teenaged Eskimo girl. Black Star was her part-husky, mostly wolf, pet. Together they were about to begin the famous Iditarod dogsled race through the bitter cold of Alaska. Bright Dawn knew they would win, but she didn't count on the cold, blinding whiteout, the belligerent bull moose, or ice that could crack and splinter at any time. And she soon realized that she was not only depending on Black Star for the race, but for her life....
