Alone across the Arctic tells the gripping adventure story of Pam Flowers's solo trip across the North American arctic coast with her eight sled dogs. Inspired by Knud Rasmussen's pioneer 1923-24 expedition along the same route, Pam is the first woman to traverse the arctic coast alone. Pam's astounding year-long journey over 2,500 miles of frozen wilderness exposed her to heart-stopping perils, from intense blizzards and melting pack ice to a frightening polar bear encounter. With storytelling and journal extracts, she offers powerful insights into the challenges and rewards of such an epic achievement.
In this inspiring true-life story, readers meet a puppy whose boundless energy almost gets the best of him. But dog musher Pam Flowers sees potential in this exuberant youngster, and Douggie's intelligence and persistence ultimately earn him the position of lead dog for a dangerous 325-mile expedition to the Magnetic North Pole. Douggie's determination and Pam's direction help him handle many challenges along the way including howling winds, swirling snow, and navigating the team through jagged piles of sea ice. But even Pam doesn't know how Douggie will react to the biggest test of all: a run-in with a polar bear! Douggie's story is an uplifting tale of how patience, perseverance, and love helped a rowdy puppy channel his energy and drive into becoming a successful leader--a wonderful example for all squirmy children and their parents and teachers.
