Synopsis:

Anna may be the smallest dog in the litter, but she's surely the most determined. In this incredible true story, Anna joins a dog team for a 2,500-mile expedition across the top of the world. When the lead dog becomes lost, it's up to Anna to take his place. Will she have what it takes to ensure the survival of all? In an exciting climax, she proves the answer is "Yes!" Arctic adventurer Pam Flowers shares Anna's amazing story in classrooms and auditoriums all over the United States and Canada. Children learn that even the smallest, seemingly the most powerless among us, are big enough to try their best. Bill Farnsworth's exquisite illustrations were painted with painstaking accuracy. A one-page epilogue maps the route and includes a photo of the real Anna.
