About Four Legged Heroes:
Is it animal magic? Or the unique DNA of the wolf? This book presents three incredible stories that will transport you into a world of canine courage, endurance, bravery, and fortitude, which can be called nothing less than miraculous.
Including the true story of an Arctic “mushing” experience, by author Mary Virginia Pittman, you will never look at the husky the same way again. Their demonstration of courage and bravery beyond imagination can only be attributed to the genetically imbued spirit of the wolf! The story of the 1925 Iditarod, Race of Mercy, is told in a unique way that will allow you to feel the arctic wind on your face and the husky’s warm breath and to hear the musher yell “Gee!”
