About the book:

"We're going to Alaska! Pass it down the lane. We're going to Alaska, from where our grandmother came..."

This is the tale of the Hilltown Sleddogs' journey across North America to the motherland of mushing, Alaska. They traveled by truck and trailer for 7 days. They trained in temperatures from 35 to 55 degrees below zero for 7 weeks. Finally on a frigid day in February 2020 this team of 12 Alaskan Huskies and their dog driver set out to mush 750 miles across the frozen Yukon River and Bering Sea, camping outside for 3 weeks on their way to Nome. From the eyes & ears of the Hilltown Sleddogs we bring you, Our Serum Run Story by the T's, U's, V's & Me!
