Summary

In the dead of winter, Polly Evans ventures to the remote Yukon Territory in Canada's far northwest, where temperatures plunge to minus 40 and the sun rises for just a few hours each day. Her mission: to learn to drive sled dogs. But when she arrives, she finds there's more to this unspoilt wilderness than deathly cold.

Good Story BUT!!

I liked the story, but the Liberal bias is evident. Global Warming comments, Oil Companies and how bad they are could have been left out of the book.
She does not appear to be a die hard Lib, so it is not that bad. Just do not expect the same propaganda I hear every day, in a book I am listening to for enjoyment.
