I was supposed to read this in 6th grade. I read most of it but never finished, and I don't know why I didn't. I was surprised, reading it again, how far through it I got - I remember specific passages from lo those many years ago.

Anyway, it was great! It was short, it was emotionally driven, and so it fit the character of a noble dog. It also pulses with a visceral sense of the Alaskan wilderness.

Nice job, Jack.
