Synopsis

Stubborn Gal The True Story of an Undefeated Sled Dog Racer by Dan O'Neill

Stubborn Gal is the true story of a sixty-mile sled dog race and a young woman determined, if not exactly qualified, to run it. A grandfather tells his granddaughter about the tenacious Sarah and her adventure with sled dogs. The older Sarah, bored and alone one winter long ago, decides to enter her first sled dog race. After a few hilariously disastrous training runs, and discouraging advice from some local mushers, the big day comes. At the end of the race, Stubborn Sarah surprises everyone, including herself. It is an inspiring story that shows that a lot of determination-and a little luck-can go a long way.
