A Race Against Time
Little Willy's grandfather is sick, and it's up to Willy to save their farm from tax collectors. Their only hope is the prize money from the National Dogsled Race. But a lot of other people want to win the race, too, including Stone Fox, who has never lost a race in his life.
Do Willy and his dog Searchlight stand a chance against the toughest racers around? Can they win the race to save the farm -- and Grandfather -- before it's too late?
"A superb piece of storytelling--without doubt the most exciting and moving book this season."--The New Yorker "Gardiner's description of the race and sudden climax (based on legend) is fast-paced and enveloping."--School Library Journal
