Where nature rules,

beauty reigns.


That's something your

grandma used to say.

I never get tired

of this drive.

Isn't it something?

I see trees, Grandpa...

...and snow.


Your mom and dad are

traveling around Europe.

And they didn't take me.

I'm so happy you're

here, Buttercup.

Mom said you

could use some company.

Well, you're not

just company...'re family.

Too bad you didn't come in

a day earlier.

We could've watched

the Race to the Sky.

One of the biggest dog sled

races in the country.

Dog sled race?

What century is this?

You would've enjoyed it.

Very exciting.

Dogs are magnificent.

If you want me to slow down

so you can enjoy the view

just say the word.

You mind

if we stop in town?

I need to go to the post office.

How far is town?

We're here.

This is town?


I love this town.

You don't get this

back in Boston.

This is it.

Want to see our post office?

That's very tempting, Grandpa,

but I think I'll wait here.

Damn, boy.

That is the fourth race

you've lost.


You're starting to embarrass me!

In front of the entire town.

The sled runners are bent from the

accident last week and the dogs are tired.

- Maybe we should let them rest.

- Excuses, excuses, excuses!

You're nothing but a

mother-loving excuse machine!

- Oh, here.

- Good race, Ozzie.

Quit your moping.


Is that any way you treat a boy?

Why don't you mind your

own business, Hale.

Shouldn't you be home...

...having a heart attack?

Come on!

- Hi, Mr. Hale.

- Hi, Jack.

Did you see the race? I came in

fourth in the junior division.


I was running first

until the last few turns.

I notice you tend

to brake on the turns

just when those dogs

really want to run.

Grandpa? I'm cold and bored.

I'm cold and bored.

Well, we'll get you home

and we'll get you toasty.

Ryan, this is Jack Ferguson,

lives next door.

That's my granddaughter.

She's from Boston.

City girl, huh?

I should get the dogs fed.

It's nice to meet you, Ry.

- Whatcha looking at?

- Do you have satellite TV?

No, but I got hot chocolate.

Come on.

Your mom gave me a list of

chapters you need to read

so you don't fall

behind in school.

Looks like a lot of work.

Not really.

I'm pretty good in school.


You still play soccer?


You were a pretty fine

player, weren't you?

The Beacon Hill girls

don't play soccer.

- They say it's for tomboys.

- Uh-huh.

The Beacon Hill girls?

Brittney and Chloe. They're the

most popular girls in my class.

Oh, and they're

friends of yours.

I tell people they are,


I don't think they say

the same about me.

Oh, I see.

They have the best cell phones,

the coolest clothes...

Brittney goes skiing in Italy.

And Chloe's family owns

a house in St. Barts.


And I'm stuck here

in Montana.


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

A sad fate for

any little girl.

Bed time,


Would you like me

to read you a story?

Grandpa, I'm ten.

Oh. Right. Yeah.


Hi, are you staying

at Mr. Hale's?

- Yeah.

- We're collecting pine cones.

Wanna come?

Pine cones?

Gosh, that sounds

really exciting.

She's not from around here,

Rusty. Let's go.

These mountain people are crazy.

- What's all this?

- My wish book.

- All the things I want.

- What is this?

- A clip for your hair.

- Forty dollars?

Chloe has one.

It's really cool.

I see.

Mom and dad won't let me

have most of this stuff.

They say not getting everything

I want builds character.

I think I would have a lot of character if they

surprised me and got me everything I want.
