Ride shotgun with the heroic mushers whose bravery inspired the Iditarod.

In the winter of 1925, Nome, Alaska, was hit by an unexpected and deadly outbreak of diphtheria. Officials immediately quarantined the town, but the only cure for the community of more than 1,400 people was antitoxin serum and the nearest supply was in Anchorage―hundreds of miles of snowbound wilderness away. The only way to get it to Nome was by dogsled.

Twenty teams braved subzero temperatures and blizzard conditions to run over 600 miles in six days in a desperate relay race that saved the people of Nome. Several of the dogs, including Togo and Balto, became national heroes. Today their efforts, and those of the courageous mushers, are commemorated every March by the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

Jon Van Zyle's stunning oil paintings capture the brutal conditions, pristine wilderness, and sheer guts and determination demonstrated by the heroic mushers and dogs.

My nephew loved this. I gave it to him for Christmas along with a stuffed animal husky which I also bought on Amazon and it made a great gift! I felt good giving him a book that was educational along with a toy. He's 7.

Easy read; written for children but has the true story surrounding the diphtheria epidemic in Nome. Contains the names of the mushers who participated in the dog sled run from Nenana to Nome as well as their portion of the trail.

This was a very good rendition of the serum race of 1925 to save hundreds of people, especially children, from dying of diptheria. I recommend the book, especially for children. Pat Harris

This book took me back to about 5 year's time. At the age of 16, I was obsessed with the real life story of Balto. The Great Serum Race is a piece of American History that is seldom taught in history books today, and it is a marvelous tale of true sacrifice.

Miller's re-telling of this great piece of American history is painted to life with Van Zyle's breathtaking paintings, and an accurate portrayal of the events of that great winter of 1925.

It was a book I held dear to, and kept checking out of the library at the age of 16, because of the fact that it inspired me and motivated me as a child to want to become something. 5 years later, this American Tale still inspires me to do what I do best.

When I received the book, it was brand new. It had a refreshing smell to it, and it brought me back to my past.

I highly recommend this read to anyone interested in a lost piece of American History.
