The front cover and plot synopsis of Woodsong indicate it’s the story of Paulsen’s first Iditarod, but it’s more about his early dog-sledding years, raising his team from pups and growing in his own understanding of why they run and the role he plays on the team.

Mar 21, Desara rated it liked it. He had a dog sled team and got to know all the dogs extremely well and knew who I thought this book did a very good job on making the scenes in the book very detailed making me think I was right there with him.

This played a crucial part, because he needed to live in a cold area to train his dogs for the Iditarod. Love the stories where the dog’s save his life by how they do and do not follow his lead in order to save their own lives too.
The sled dogs will teach Paulsen life truths that haven’t made their mark on him yet, existential realities he probably never could garyy accepted apart from time spent with unfettered wildlife, animals interacting with their environment and mankind organically, apart from the illusion of inherent human superiority that modern technology projects.
It is a great, heart-pounding memoir. Gary Paulsen’s talent placed him in the company of three of the very best to ever ply the pauosen, each comparison made with a different aspect in mind of his award-winning genius.
