Small, feisty Siberian husky Togo – the overlooked sled-dog hero of the 1925 serum run to Nome – sets the record straight in Dog Diaries #4! When an epidemic breaks out in isolated Nome, Alaska, in January 1925, the only way to get life-saving serum to the town is by using dog-sled relay teams. Twenty teams participate, and the dog who gets credit for saving the town is Balto, lead dog on the final team which delivered the serum. But few people have heard of 12-year-old Togo and his musher Leonard Seppala, who carried the serum for almost double the length of any other team. Read about their true adventure which is told from Togo’s point of view.
