Summary
Part husky/part wolf, Balto doesn't know where he belongs. He's an outcast in Alaska, except his true friends: Boris, the Russian snow goose, polar bear cubs Muk and Luk and the the beautiful husky, Jenna. One day, a serious diphtheria epidemic spreads fast among the children of Nome. When a fierce blizzard closes off all routes of transport, there's no way to obtain life saving medicine ... unless a team of sled dogs can race six-hundred miles through the blinding Arctic storm and bring back antitoxin. But the dogs are lost in the frozen wilderness. Now, only Balto can rescue the team and save the children. Balto is based on the remarkable true story of a hero who inspired a nation and became a legend
