Charlie was a nameless Inuit sled dog who deserved a name and a better life. Helen gave him both. Together they traveled 364 miles to circumnavigate the entire magnetic North Pole area. Charlie’s loyalty and courage never wavered as they survived the unstable, dangerous Arctic sea ice, endured the violent storms than can last for days, and defended against the polar bears who can hunt and kill humans for food. Seven times Charlie confronted hungry polar bears, each time ready to give his own life to protect his companion. Charlie, by demonstrating an extraordinary sense of purpose and intelligence, earned a lifetime of love and devotion from his human companions, and secured a place in canine adventure history.
