Riley said yes.

In this book, there was a dog named Balto and one day some children had a terrible sickness called diphtheria. the doctor didn’t have the medicine that he needed and the medicine there was was 800 miles away and everyone had a big meeting and everyone was scared so they put the medicine in a train and soon the train got stuck in deep snow. But there was still 700 miles left. So they decided to do it by dogsled. Gunner and lead dog Balto made it through three stops of all of the 21 stops. They delivered it in 5 and a half days instead of 15 days.
