A fourth grade student and I agreed to each read a different volume of Scott O'Dell's and I chose "Black Star, Bright Dawn," and I am glad. It is the story of an Eskimo girl whose family moves from the coast inland after her father, Bartok, is stranded on an ice floe while seal hunting. While he survives physically, he leaves his profession & agrees to train for the Iditarod (a grueling dogsled race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska). Soon he is injured. His daughter, 18-year-old Bright Dawn, agrees to replace him at the behest of Bartok's backers. She loves the dogs, but Black Star, a husky-wolf mix is her favorite.

The story is one of adventure and quiet intensity. When she is to leave, she is told, "Be of good cheer." Later, she is advised by an older racer that "[t]he race is won by thinking." Sturdy Bright Dawn proves to be resourceful, compassionate and ingenious. O'Dell's descriptions of the environment--the sparkling darkness, the ubiquitous cold, the dogs buried in snow so that "[j]ust their noses showed"--and Bright Dawn's travails in the weather and wildlife (moose attack!) make for a splendid, snowy immersion in the far north.

This title will appeal to readers who enjoy adventure stories and/or animal tales. ( )

A fascinating look at Eskimo (that's what he calls them - what he has them call themselves) ways. Almost an enjoyable story, too - the details of the race were amazing. However, I was disappointed overall. There are a _lot_ of threads that just get dropped, and more that are passed over with bare notice. The whole thing with the white wolf, for one; her father's breakthrough; her placement in the race...events happen, some of which ought to be momentous, and the story barely pauses to notice them as it passes on. Not a winner, for me. ( )
