Zig is like no other dog–you can tell from one glance at that cover! This sweet girl is the princess of the dog yard in this romping story about a hard-working, well-loved sled dog at Jeff King’s Husky Homestead. Located in the heart of Alaska near the foot of Denali, the Husky Homestead is home to dozens of talented sled dogs, but Zig is a favorite. Spoiled? Never! Hear Zig’s story in her own voice as she remembers puppyhood, training with the “big dogs,” and how she discovered she was born to be a WARRIOR, not just a PRINCESS.

JEFF KING is one of mushing’s best-known competitors and a four-time champion of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race® who trains his canine athletes year-round. Each summer, thousands of visitors come to the Husky Homestead to meet the musher, cuddle puppies, watch the sled dogs in action, and hear amazing trail stories.
