Mad Dogs and an Englishwoman: Audiobook Advent Day One
It’s the first day of Audiobook Advent! We’re opening the first door of the calendar on an audiobook featuring Canadian wilderness, snow, and some seriously good doggos.
Mad Dogs and an Englishwoman is the story of Polly Evans, who ventures to the remote Yukon territory in Canada’s far northwest. There, the temperatures plunge to minus forty and the sun rises for just a few hours every day. Her mission: to learn to drive sled dogs. But when she arrives, she finds there’s more to this unspoilt wilderness than deathly cold.
In a pristine landscape patrolled by wolves and caribou, Polly takes her first bruising lessons in the art of mushing. But before the snows melt in spring, she hones her skills and becomes infatuated with this brutal, beautiful land where jagged gems of hoar frost glisten on the spruce boughs and the northern lights weave green and red across the skies.
Above all, she discovers a deep affection for the loving, mischievous huskies who with such courage and enthusiasm escort her through the lone white trails of the unforgiving north.
