Animals: Sled Dogs
Author: John Refolds Gardiner
Little Willy has a big job to do. When his gradfather falls ill, it is up to Willy alone to save their farm from the tax collector. But where can a ten-year-old get five hundred dollars in a hurry? Then Willy sees the poster for the National Dogsled Race.
The race pits Willy against the best dog teams in the country, including the Indian Stone Fox and his five beautiful Samoyeds, who have never lost a race. And Stone Fox wants the prize money as badly as Willy does. Willy's dog Searchlight, is every bit as fast as the competition. But can one boy and one dog be a match for the unbeatable Stone Fox?
