KIRKUS REVIEW

 A detailed, carefully written account of a 15-year-old boy's participation in the Junior Iditarod in Alaska, with large, colorful, action-packed photographs of the race. Readers learn of the origins of the original Iditarod as well as the more recent junior race, then follow Dusty through his preparations for the 158-mile journey, learning all about dogs and sleds along the way. Wood (with Guy Garcia, Spirit of the Maya, 1995, etc.) keeps the pace brisk and fills the pages with snow scenes, delivering a lot of information, organized in an engaging way. An attractive volume that captures the thrill of the race and comes with a bonus--Dusty takes first place. (map) (Picture book/nonfiction. 8-12)
