Honest Dogs
Honest Dogs A Story of Triumph and Regret from the World's Toughest Sled Dog Race

Author - Brian Patrick O'Donoghue

It had been six years since newspaper reporter Brian Patrick O'Donoghue mushed to a last place finish in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Yearning to challenge himself anew, he enters the Yukon Quest, a more brutal 1,000-mile run between Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and Fairbanks, Alaska. With wry humor and diminishing expectations, O'Donoghue shares the trail with Khan, Hobbes, Scrimshaw, Cyclone, and ten other excitable Alaska huskies, plus a diverse collection of rival racers and resident bush rats. The mushers' strategies, dreams and disappointments, the antics of the dogs, and the drama of the race are all part of this punishing personal journey.

"If you've got spirit and the love of life, this book will make you want to recruit a bunch of canine buddies and join the strange characters who still roam the trails of Jack London's Great White Silence."
