Legend of the Ghost Dog by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel
Tee, her writer father and her little brother Jack are in Nome, Alaska for a few months. Tee is excited by all the wide open spaces to walk with her dog Henry. On one of their walks Henry gets spooked and Tee thinks she sees the shadow of a big dog. Tee meets Quin and the two girls become fast friends, investigating the ghost dog together. This book is billed as a thrilling mystery but it read more to me as an elementary level book and a lesson in sled dog history.
