KIRKUS REVIEW

In 1925 Alaska, a dog-sled relay transported medicine 800 miles from Fairbanks to Nome to halt a diptheria epidemic; Balto (whose statue can still be admired in NYC's Central Park) led the last team, which courageously ran the final 53 miles in 20 hours. Realistic full-color illustrations round out this interesting vignette.
