    My students really enjoyed Paulsen's stories. They found them entertaining as well as educational about the "woods", They especially loved reading about his experience in the Iditarod. We follow the current Iditarod while we read Paulsen's tale. They loved learning about the Iditarod as well.

          If you like the outdoors and dogs, you'll love this book. Each chapter is about a different adventure, dog or event.
