--Joe Runyan, first musher to win both the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod "Mushing"
"A lack of tough literary heroines for the youngest readers prompted . . . Stubborn Gal, the true story of a young woman who competed in her first Alaskan sled dog race--a grueling 60-mile run--and won."--Seth Kantner, author of Ordinary Wolves "Bellingham Herald"
"Sometimes you just have to take a chance. Stubborn Gal is based on a true story of an Alaska gal who mulishly persisted through many hard-learned rookie mistakes. A window into the Alaska lifestyle, a real adventure!"
--Libby Riddles, first woman to win the Iditarod
"Stubborn Gal is a charming rugged tough Alaskan girl story, complete with determination, inspiration and spirited artwork."--Seth Kantner, author of Ordinary Wolves
"Dan O'Neill's Stubborn Gal is a terrific, true story that will surely delight both children and the adults who read it with them. The lively text delivers life lessons about independence, persistence, and grace with a light hand and good humor, and the illustrations by Klara Maisch are both beautiful and true to Alaska. Highly recommended."--Nancy Lord, former Alaska Writer Laureate
