Stephen and his father love dogsledding in the mountains of southern Alberta. On a beautiful winter day, they leave with their eight dogs for a trip to the valley. The landscape is beautiful and the dogs are having fun when suddenly Stephen's father is thrown from the sled. Alone, holding the dog team's reins, Stephen is heading towards a cliff. But tragedy is averted thanks to the lead dog Skoki. A Team Like No Other tells the beautiful story of friendship and trust. The realistic illustrations aptly express the beauty of the Canadian Rockies.
