In Whistler, British Columbia, dogs can be found riding chairlifts, perched on skiers’ shoulders, and even descending from helicopters–all in the race to the scene of an avalanche and the race against time to save people who were caught in the path of destruction.

Meet Henry, a lovable border collie who is slight but strong, and the team of dogs and human partners he works with in the beautiful and sometimes dangerous mountains. Through the action-packed primary text, informative and engaging interstitials that delve into the history and science behind avalanches and rescue dogs, and eight pages of stunning full-color photographs, young readers will experience real-life rescues and gain a new appreciation for the bond between dogs and humans.
