Wow,
This is one of the first Audeo Bookes I tried. I couldn't turn it off. I suggested it to a friend and he read it in one weekend because he just couldn't but it down.

I almost kept this book for my keeper shelf. WOW, what a great story. I thought it would be the true tale behind one of my favorite movies, Balto, but it was so much more than that. The story of the serum run had me cheering, crying and holding my breath. Even though I knew the outcome I still worried. And on top of that story the book weaves in the history of Alaska, its people and its dogs. Fabulous story!

A great story of courage and determination, learned a lot about the desolation and isolation of Alaska in the late 1880's to the 1920's.

Taken from the back of the book. " When a deadly diphtheria epidemic swept through Nome, Alaska, in 1925, the local doctor knew that without a fresh batch of antitoxin, his patients would die."
This is the story about how the antitoxin was delivered across the Alaskan wilderness to Nome. What a fascinating account of this sad yet inspiring story. I have only one issue, it started and stoped a couple story lines and then restarted it in another part of the book, found that to be very annoying.
