    13. This book is a good example of "don't judge a book by its cover". I really wasn't interested in this book at all based on the look of the cover, the dog (remember how I avoid sad dog books!), and the topic of the Gold Rush. However, once I started reading I could not put this book down. It is the story of how an abused sled dog and an independent young girl both find themselves in Nome, Alaska because of the Gold Rush.

    15. This is a wonderful tale of one dog's adventure from life as an abused sled-dog to the beloved pet and protector of the feisty, brave and determined Sally. Set just after the Dawson City gold rush near the Yukon and Alaska, it is full of adventure, suspense, danger and wilderness. It also contains many details about the time period (1900). I think it is a great book for everyone, especially dog-lovers.

    16. I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to! I liked how feisty the main character Sally is and her determination to see things through (in the way she wants no less) to the very end, is part of what makes the story move along so well. It's an interesting idea to have the the story told through the dog's voice and a unique way to explore historical fiction. A fun read.

    17. A heart-warming tale that takes place in the cold (and the gold). The tale of a big adventure full of emotion and frozen imagery and the tale of a young girl who's willing to go through hell to escape the hell of her home town. One can only feel sympathy for the young heroine and her canine friend. Highly recommended to young readers and the young at heart.

    18. This book is historical fiction told from a dog's point of view. It's 1900 and Murphy is owned by a horrible man who is in Nome to find gold. A girl finds him and together they share some pretty scary adventures. Kids who love dogs will enjoy this.

    19. Sally is a very resourceful and determined girl, which I appreciated. But she was the highlight of the book. Murphy was a little bland and the story wrapped up pretty neatly. It's a good solid choice for historical fiction for younger kids, but I don't see it truly engaging many.

    20. It wasn't quite as horrible as I thought it was going to be. At least it was over quickly. And there will be plenty of kids who like it.

    21. This title has lots of interesting information about the gold rush days in Alaska. The dog protagonist tugged at my heart and I'm not really a dog person.

    22. The story was fine, though I didn't particularly enjoy it. However, enjoyed the detail in the setting and historical elements. Students who enjoy animal adventure stories may enjoy this.
