Spirit of the Wind
Spirit of the Wind The Story of Alaska's George Attla, Legendary Sled Dog Sprint Champ

Author - Lew Freedman

In 1958, no one in the Fur Rendezvous World Championship Sled Dog Race knew the Athabascan Indian from Huslia who limped to the starting line in Anchorage. But when he finished with the winning time, George Attla opened a new chapter in the history of sprint mushing. For decades, Attla, the "Huslia Hustler," reined as Alaska's most winning sprint champion, having overcome crippling TB as a child.

Special note to readers: This is a new edition, with a new title, new introduction and new epilogue, of a work first published by Stackpole Books.
