From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-- A compelling account, told in easy-to-read format, of Balto, a sled dog who led his team through snow and ice over 53 miles of northern Alaska wilderness to deliver some medicine. The story is based on an actual event that occurred in 1925 during an outbreak of diptheria, when the closest medicine was 800 miles away in Anchorage. When the train bearing the important cargo became buried in the snow still 700 miles from its destination, a dog sled relay was used. Cook's softly colored illustrations are expressive and enhance the drama of the story--a proud and heroic story that young readers are sure to enjoy. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IACopyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc.

The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook: Hundreds of Favorite Recipes Created to Combat Congestive Heart Failure and Dangerous Hypertension
Donald A. Gazzaniga
0312291647
July 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Even though it's a cookbook, this work reads like high drama: Gazzaniga suffered from heart failure, a condition that can in some cases necessitate a heart transplant; but because he successfully controlled his salt and sodium intake, he has restored his health. Gazzaniga realized that he'd first have to adapt his tastes and cravings to new flavors and textures. Cream, soy sauce, ketchup and commercial breads were just a few things that had to be eliminated, but as he avers, "All is not lost." Gazzaniga bakes all his own breads with a lowest-sodium baking powder, buys no-salt canned goods from the health-food store and has even found an acceptable no-salt ketchup. It may take some extra planning and shopping, but, he promises, readers will find his wide-ranging recipes (Chicken in Almond Sauce, Scampi in Wine,...

The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Baking Book

Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
People compelled to control their sodium intake will welcome The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Baking Book. Following his earlier cookbook, Donald A. Gazzaniga shows how to ensure that those who can't tolerate sodium can still enjoy flavorful baked goods. Gazzaniga covers both yeast-raised and quick breads. The latter require special sodium-free baking powder to achieve the lowest sodium levels. Garlic-cheese focaccia, French onion bread, and Italian sourdough make for good sandwiches. Sweet breads, including one with oats, dates, and prunes, provide plenty of fiber. Cookie recipes, especially those for biscotti, supply plenty of spicy flavor without compromising on sodium levels. Gazzaniga also shares nutritional information for diabetics, and he further explains how to make his recipes suitable for sugar-restricted...

Wine and War: The French, the Nazis, and the Battle for France's Greatest Treasure
Donald Kladstrup
0767904486
April 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review's Best of 2001
Liberty, equality, and fraternity are all well and good, a champion of French culture once remarked. But, he continued, what made France truly superior to its neighbors was the French passion for wine, which "contributed to the French race by giving it wit, gaiety, and good taste, qualities which set it profoundly apart from people who drink a lot of beer."

The commentator may have had a point; after all, write Don and Petie Kladstrup, it was a well-known fact that Adolf Hitler did not like wine. Still, their leader's teetotalism notwithstanding, the Germans showed no distaste for French wine when they invaded France in 1940. Indeed, among the first acts of the occupying army was to seize great stores of wine, sending tens of thousands of barrels to the Third Reich and ordering the conversion of thousands...

No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Light Meals Book
Donald A. Gazzaniga
0312335016
February 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Perhaps heartbreaking is the wrong word for a very happy event, one that brings tears to your eyes because you know what the alternative would have been. But however you describe it, the letters that Don Gazzaniga finds on his web site ever since his first cookbook was published easily bring tears to the reader's eyes.

"The doctor told him that the very low-sodium diet is the main thing responsible for this success and I couldn't wait to share it with you."

"When I said that your book saved [my husband's] life, I meant it."

That first cookbook was a surprise to medical professionals and their patients alike. Doctors have always believed that no one could ever get below 1500 milligrams of sodium a daily diet.
"Keep it at that level," Don's doctor told the sixty-three-year-old Gazzaniga in...
