Douggie: The Playful Pup Who Became a Sled Dog Hero (Paperback)
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 faces many challenges along the way, but even Pam doesn't know how Douggie will react to the biggest test of all: a run-in with a polar bear
Pam shares her adventures with dogs in six noteworthy and award-winning books published by Alaska Northwest Books. She has spoken as a visiting author to more than 800,000 students at over 1450 schools across America, lectured at The Smithsonian, received the Gold Medal from the Society of Woman Geographers, and was named an "Outsider of the Year" by Outside Magazine. She has participated in nine arctic expeditions, successfully completed the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and appeared three times on THE MOTH international radio show.
