Pam Flowers loves the arctic. And she decided to undertake a huge task - to cross the artic circle with her dog team. This is the story of that trip (with lots of great pictures). A very interesting read which I really enjoyed.

I thought this book was just okay. It was interesting to read about Pam Flowers' adventures, but it was not really a topic that I really enjoy. I am not really into adventure in the wild.
Read this with my 10 year old and we were both captivated with Pam & her dogs and their epic journey. Can't wait to meet her in person this spring at the library!
I heard Pam speak last week and was impressed with her courag and determniation. I am a dog sledding fan! I enjoyd going along with her on her travels.
Read this with J, now reading with E. Good modern woman adventure story, though I can never imagine the appeal of the arctic...
Fabulous true adventure story.
