Fact
Sled Dogs
http://library.thinkquest.org/04oct/00450/sleddogs.htm
the Native Americans in their every day lives to help survive very cold climates. They were used to guard the tribe's reindeer herds, haul food and other supplies, and to pull heavy loads. In 1896, during the Alaskan gold rush, dog sleds were needed more than ever. Explorers used dog sleds to travel through Alaska's snow.
One of the most famous sled dogs was named Balto. In 1925, the town of Nome, Alaska was faced with a possible outbreak of diphtheria, a lifethreatening disease of young people. The only medicine to cure this terrible disease was located in Anchorage, Alaska, nearly 1,000 miles away. More than 20 dog sled “mushers” raced their dog sleds in the 40-below zero weather to Anchorage. In only six days, with Balto as the lead dog, Gunner Kassen arrived before everyone. Balto soon became a hero and a celebrity known around the world. The path that Mr. Kassen and Balto took from Nome to Anchorage has become the path in a current-day dog sled race, the Iditarod.
