Born to Pull: The Glory of Sled Dogs

by Bob Cary

illustrations by Gail de Marcken

We've been waiting years for this book to be reprinted! It explains the world of dog sledding with great information and beautiful artwork. If you love dogs, are curious about mushing, or love the northern traditions, get this book. Written for adults, and cherished by many an Ely child. Otherwise impassable distances of snow and ice, guiding them home through trackless wilderness, these burly, strong dogs were the lifeblood of the northern winter world. Today, from races like the famed Iditarod and the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon, to sled dog tours, people are rediscovering the joy of mushing. Born to Pull is a celebration of sled dogs who love to run in cold and snowy Minnesota, including lively stories from veteran mushers, insider information on dog care and training, and affectionate watercolor illustrations that make the dogs come to life on the pages.
