Gary Paulsen has had a life as exciting as fiction!

Gary Paulsen, three-time Newbery Honor author, is no stranger to adventure. He has flown off the back of a dogsled and down a frozen waterfall to near disaster, and waited for a giant bear to seal his fate with one slap of a claw. He has led a team of sled dogs toward the Alaskan Mountain Range in an Iditarod -- the grueling, 1,180-mile dogsled race -- hallucinating from lack of sleep, but he determined to finish.
     Here, in vivid detail, Paulsen recounts several of the remarkable experiences that shaped his life and inspired his award-winning writing.

User Review  - Huskypup - Goodreads

I loved this book because it involved the Iditarod and it involved dogs. It was humorous and sad when one of the dogs died and me and half of my class cried when we read it. Read full review
