Big-Enough Anna: The Little Sled Dog Who Braved The Arctic

Pam Flowers was getting ready for a major adventure: a six-month, 2,500-mile dogsled journey from Barrow, AK, to Repulse Bay, Canada. If she succeeded, it would make her the first woman to cross the North American Arctic alone — or at least, without any human companions. To succeed, she needed a top team of sled dogs, so Flowers started training Anna and her littermates with older, more experienced dogs. Anna was the smallest by far, but she had a big heart and she loved to run, so Flowers chose her for the trip.

The journey was grueling, and in the middle of it, Flowers' lead sled dog ran off, leaving her without one of her most seasoned canine companions. Who could step in? Why, Anna could! Flowers' trek took almost twice as long as planned, but she made it to the end... with a lead sled dog who had proved she was big enough to take on the tasks. This compelling picture book based on a true story from Flowers' record-setting trip will delight anyone who wonders if they're enough to make a difference.

Description

"A true story of how the runt of the litter became the leader of the pack.... Though Anna was the smallest, she proved to have heart and a love of running; she was chosen for the trip. About halfway through the trek, the seasoned lead dog ran off; Anna took over and was instrumental in finishing the journey, which lasted almost twice as long as planned." — Maryann H. Owen, School Library Journal
