Remarkable Arctic explorer, musher and author
PAM FLOWERS TALKS ABOUT HER SLED DOGS, HER
EXPEDITIONS -- AND SOME SPECIAL K9 MOMENTS
Several summers ago, I had a chance to visit Alaska --
and to meet Pam Flowers, a remarkable woman, and her huskies. I was impressed
with her courage and love of her dogs. We talked then about doing an interview about
her Arctic expeditions and her sled dogs -- and we both finally found time to make it
happen. Discover how Pam got hooked on mushing sled dogs, how she and her team
succeeded in a 2,500-mile journey along the Arctic edge of the continent, and what her
dogs mean to her.
Today, Pam has finished two books -- Alone
Across The Arctic and Big-Enough
Anna about her adventures and her dogs -- and travels to schools across the
country to speak to children about her journeys and about reaching for dreams.

right side of the WorkingDogWeb home page.
