Newbery Honor Book His people no longer use dog sleds, instead they use snowmobiles; but Oogruk still has an old team of sled dogs, and they've grown fat and lazy. Russell wonders what it was like to run with the dogs, to look at the snow and ice and hear only the swish of runners along the icy crust, to be like his ancestors. To answer his thoughts, he turns to Oogruk who tells him of the old days and the songs of his people. But hearing about it is not enough, so Russell learns to run the dogs and soon takes off across the tundra, replicating journeys that have been made for thousands of years.

Gary Paulsen was born on May 17, 1939 in Minnesota. During the first few years of his life, his father was stationed in Europe during World War II and his mother worked in a factory. Paulsen was raised by his grandmother and aunts. He lived overseas after the war in the Phillippines between 1946-49. Ever since he was fifteen, he worked many jobs to support himself. He attended Bemidji College, in Minnesota, paying his tuition by being a trapper. He also spent some time in the army. He decided one day to try writing and tried to become a magazine editor. He spent nearly a year as an associate magazine editor on a magazine for men in Hollywood, California. He published his first book, "Special War," in 1966 and had published nearly forty books and several articles and short stories during his early years. He went back to school in 1972, attending the University of Colorado, but his career was interrupted by a lawsuit in 1977 over "Winterkill." In 1990, he suffered a mild heart attack, which did not hinder his writing at all. Some of Paulsen's most well-known books are the Hatchet series, although he has published many other popular novels including Dogsong, Harris and Me, and The Winter Room, which won the Newbery Honor. Woodsong and Winterdance are among the most popular books about the Iditarod. Paulsen was the recipient of the 1997 Margaret A. Edwards Award for his lifetime achievement in writing for young adults.
