About The Book

It's 1925 and Balto, a Siberian husky, lives a quiet existence as a sled dog in Nome, Alaska, until tragedy strikes. Dozens of children in the remote town of Nome become sick with diphtheria. Without special medication, they will perish — and the closest supply is 650 miles away. The only way to get the medication to Nome is by sled, but can the sled dogs get there in time? Heading bravely into a brutal blizzard, Balto leads the race for life!
