Quick Overview

In this, the seventh book of The Good Lord made Them All series, Joe L. Wheeler has collected stories from the Far North: Norway, Alaska, British Columbia, and the Arctic Circle to name a few places. The animals featured include sled dogs, wolves, weasels, and eagles in a veritable Who’s Who of the North.
“The story of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race is as improbable as the story of the Great Serum Run to Nome that inspired it.  For the incredible yearly thousand-mile Iditarod is neither more nor less than the lengthened shadow of one man and one dog: Leonhard Seppala and Togo, quite possible the greatest dog who ever lived.” – Joe L. Wheeler
 “We are prisoners in a jail of ice and snow.  The last boat … is gone and this little community is left to its own resources… alone with the darkness and the chill of the North.” – Nome Chronicle, 1925.
This is unquestionably the greatest sled dog story ever told – and it has been told many times with one constant: the wrong dog gets the credit.  But time has a way of sorting things out.  Though Balto continues to be immortalized, where it matters most – in the great state of Alaska – Seppala and Togo gain in stature with every year that passes.

Joe L. Wheeler


Joe Wheeler's writing career started in the fall of 1992 with a collection of heart-tugging stories called Christmas in My Heart, a series that he has become well-known for. Joe Wheeler has been called everything from "Keeper of the Story" to "Father Christmas." He has been a frequent guest on Dr. James Dobson's radio show "Focus on the Family", and today is considered to be one of America's leading story anthologizers, editing collections for nine publishers. Dr. Wheeler has a bachelor's degree in both history and English from Pacific Union College, a master's degree in history, a master's degree in English from California State University, and a Ph.D. in English from Vanderbilt University. Today, Wheeler is senior fellow for cultural studies at the Center for the New West in Denver, Colorado, and professor emeritus of Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, Maryland.
