"Under midday sun, bright crystals of snow glisten. While behind willow bushes a hidden moose pauses to listen." This is a whimsical tale about a young girl on an adventure by dog team in rural interior Alaska. The story is autobiographical and is accompanied by real photos from the author's childhood, as well as a cover illustration by the author's brother. Using verse, the writer invokes a sense of a still winter day on the Yukon River where a kid can roam alone and with confidence that her dog team will carry her safely home. Alaskan words are defined at the end of the book, educating the reader about the unique descriptions of animal and place. Any reader will feel the uniqueness of this girl's experience, made even more amazing by the knowledge that it is true.
