Stubborn Gal is the true story of a sixty-mile sled dog race and a young woman determined, if not exactly qualified, to run it. A grandfather tells his granddaughter about the tenacious Sarah and her adventure with sled dogs. The older Sarah, bored and alone one winter long ago, decides to enter her first sled dog race. After a few hilariously disastrous training runs, and discouraging advice from some local mushers, the big day comes. At the end of the race, Stubborn Sarah surprises everyone, including herself. It is an inspiring story that shows that a lot of determination-and a little luck-can go a long way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A beautifully crafted true story. . . . Loaded with gorgeous illustrations, important basics of mushing, and a refreshing honesty about the trials and tribulations of running sled dogs. . . . Will surely inspire young audiences."
--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
