 Suggested answer to Exercise 4 on P187:

        I will never forget the winter in 1846. When we traveled across the Salt Lake desert, we lost our way shortly after we entered the desert. Anyone who has common sense knows that one can’t get across the desert without water. Our water supply became less and less, and new water source was not found. The beasts that were too weak to carry luggage were killed. We had to walk out of the desert on foot. For many weeks, we had been accustomed to seeing deadbeasts and abandoned wagons along the way.

       Things got worse and nobody took it easy. Everyone tried to protect themselves. Once I was so tired and weak that I was nearly left behind. However, I managed to keep up with team at last. We almost lost heart when we saw a valley with fat cattle and horses. We knew we had reached the destination! Our days of hardship had come to an end.

   Suggested answer to Exercise 3 on P189:

       At three o’clock in the morning we reached the edge of the desert. The animals almost ran. They must have smelt the water. Not long after this, we reached a running stream. Farmers who saw us stared at us. They could hardly believe what they saw. We looked like walking skeletons. When we saw the valley with cattle and horses, we thought we had reached the promised land! Our days of hardship had come to an end.

Second, at that time, the sea was frozen and the only two planes had been stored, nothing got to Nome quickly. Third, The Arctic winter was very cold and there were terrible storms.

 The plot A terrible disease called diphtheria struck Nome, but there were no enough vaccine.

Luckily, the doctors found a good supply of it in Anchorage. However, the frozen sea and the shortage of the plane made it impossible to deliver the vaccine fast. So people decided to use a dog team.
