To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a great story to begin with, and I've read the adult book, "Race Across Alaska", but this beautifully illustrated children's version is a great way for the younger set to experience it's message of courage, determination, and teamwork. It's fun, exciting, and timeless. It's a real story and my grandkids especially appreciated that.
This is a condensed version of Ms Riddles' great story of her epic adventure written for tweens and teens but by no means 'written down' for younger readers. The key parts are all there and one can vicariously enjoy the exhilarating and scary adventure.
This is an excellent book. It is simply written and details many of the problems encounterd by Libbey Riddles as she races and wins the Iditarod sled dog race in 1985. She was the first woman to win this race.
Inspiring book has my 8 eight year old daughter planning a trip to Alaska. Well written, exciting and a great example of perseverance. Libby Riddles is an amazing, courageous, determined woman. Loved the pictures of her and her family of dogs. Excellent book!
