Helen Hegener, Northern Lights Media: The History of Sled Dogs in North America From the Bering Sea to the Atlantic Ocean
Helen Hegener: My book about the history of sled dogs on this continent has received many accolades since its publication last year, but the most recent review is the most in-depth and certainly the most stellar review of the lot. In the November 4 edition of the Anchorage Daily News, book reviewer David James writes, “At 420 large pages, it’s daunting on the surface and might cause even the most avid musher to think twice about reading it. Don’t be daunted, and don’t think twice. The writing is lively, there are plenty of illustrations, and best of all, it’s fun to read.”
