Woodsong - Gary Paulsen In this book, Paulsen(author of [b:Hatchet|50|Hatchet (Brian's Saga, #1)|Gary Paulsen|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347443751s/50.jpg|1158125]) tells us about his experiences with animals, mainly dogs, and what he has learned from them. The last 40 pages describe his first Iditarod. There is no spectacular prose here, but the stories are interesting, funny, touching or have you grimacing at Paulsen's pain as a dog bites his knee or he is dragged behind his sled with his head slamming into boulders. It's a quick, fun read, and you see just how smart and funny dogs can be.
