"...I was running a team in the north and they were out there ahead of me and it was beautiful... And I knew nothing. I was so ignorant, so steeped in not knowing that I did not even know what I didn't know. I didn't know what questions to ask, or how to ask them, and I would not begin to learn until Storm taught me. His blood taught me..." The author of DOGSONG (Bradbury 1985), HATCHET (Bradbury, 1987) and THE WINTER ROOM (Orchard, 1989) tells how he trained and ran dogs for the Iditarod, a 1,180-mile dogsled race in Alaska. Paulsen relates robust survival stories from his life in northern Minnesota as well as the memorable inner odyssey of his changing values concerning active hunting and trapping. (Age 9 and older)
