Review:

Three of Gary Paulsen's books have made it to the Newbery Honor list: Dogsong, Hatchet and The Winter Room. Puppies, Dogs, and Blue Northers is a good bet to join the previous three on that list. This loving biography relates the story of Cookie, Paulsen's dog and friend and the lead dog for the Iditarod sled race in Alaska. The book begins with Cookie's last litter and ends when the arthritic old dog heads out the door for the last time. It is a story no dog lover will be able to resist.

From the Publisher:

"Paulsen is at the top of his form in this tribute to his sled dog Cookie... With the same rugged reverence for wilderness that underscores his classic Hatchet, Paulsen trains a sharp eye on the dogs and puppies he kenneled in his northern Minnesota home." --Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Behind Mr. Paulsen's characteristically nonstop action howl constant north Minnesota winter storms, vividly rendered in Ruth Wright Paulsen's graceful paintings."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Paulsen is not known for writing love stories, but that's exactly what this lyrical, tender account is, showcasing Cookie, his primary lead dog for some 14,000 miles, who saved Paulsen's life more than once 'Such a bond, such a love I had with Cookie'--and such a book he wrote to share that love with others."
--Kirkus Reviews, Pointer

"Readers are drawn into the special bond between driver and lead dog through Paulsen's real-life experiences racing in Minnesota." --School Library Journal
