Ten-year-old Willy has a big job to do -- he has to find a way to raise enough money to save his grandfather's farm from the tax collectors. But where can a boy get five hundred dollars in a hurry? Then Willy sees the poster for the National Dogsled Race, and he knows what he must do. But can one boy and his dog be a match for the legendary Stone Fox and his unbeatable team of sled dogs? First published in 1980, this exciting tale has been a favorite of millions of readers, and is now available in a newly repackaged edition.
Ten-year-old Willy needs to win the big dogsled race in order to pay the back taxes on his grandfather's farm--but that means beating the huge Indian mountain man, Stone Fox. "Gardiner's description of the race and sudden climax (based on legend) is fast-paced and enveloping".--School Library Journal. New York Times Outstanding Children's Book.
