VERDICT Hand this touching coming-of-age adventure to fans of Gary Paulsen's Hatchet." -- School Library Journal
Jeremy lives in a small community where winters are long and stray dogs roam the streets. When peer pressure leads Jeremy into a bad prank, he is immediately struck with guilt -- and that's when his life changes forever. Trying to make amends, Jeremy befriends Yellow Dog and in the process meets a curious old man who introduces him to the adventures of dog sledding. Soon Jeremy is forming his own old-time dog team that includes Yellow Dog and in the process, discovers more about himself -- and the old man -- than he ever thought possible.
