Why, I had dragged her to school on a sled when she was a child.
But they saw, up the trail, and not down, two men running with sled and dogs.
The dogs had lain down in the snow, and he walked past them to join his partner in the sled.
On the sled, securely lashed, was a long and narrow oblong box.
A gloomy breakfast was eaten, and the four remaining dogs were harnessed to the sled.
One sled he drove himself, drawn by dogs he had traded for or borrowed.
Every rope was brought to a ring at the front end of the sled.
It was to this that was fastened the long rope by which he pulled at the sled.
He cut their traces and went forward, dragging the sled himself.
Rising to his feet, on the other side of the fire he saw his sled.
