Synopsis

Synopsis

Balto has a quiet life as a sled dog—until tragedy strikes. Dozens of children in Nome become sick with diphtheria. Without antitoxin serum, they will perish—and the closest supply is 650 miles away! The only way to get the serum to Nome is by sled, but can the dogs deliver it in time? Heading bravely into a brutal blizzard, Balto leads the race for life.

About Elizabeth Cody Kimmel

Elizabeth Cody Kimmel - Balto and the Great Race (Totally True Adventures)

"I have loved both dogs and snow since I was a child," says Elizabeth Cody Kimmel. "As a little girl, I lived on a very remote road, and our house was surrounded by woods. When it snowed, I used to venture outside with our dog, my imagination creating an adventure story for us both to live. Balto's story is exactly the kind of tale I might have created - but it is true!"

Ms. Kimmel lives with her husband and daughter in Cold Spring, New York. Balto and the Great Race is her third book, and her second with a lot of snow in it.
