The class read Stone Fox, by John Reynolds Gardiner, as our first novel.
It is a story about a boy named Little Willy, who has to take care of the family potato farm after Grandfather takes ill. He soon finds out that Grandfather owes $500 in back taxes, and the farm may be taken away. Little Willy has to think of a way to save the farm, and when the opportunity to enter a dog sled contest is presented, Little Willy thinks he and Searchlight, his dog, have a chance. That is until Stone Fox, a man who's won every race also competes. Read the book to find out what happens.
