Togo and Balto: The Dogs Who Saved a Town by Jodie Parachini, Keiron Ward, Jason Dewhirst


It's 1925 and diptheria has spread through a town.  The weather is bad.  The only way there is dog sleds.

Albert Whitman and Company and Edelweiss have let me read this book.  It has been published and you can get a copy now.
