Tales of the Trail Told by the Men & Women Who Race Across Alaska|
Blinding blizzards. Freezing wind. Paralyzing cold temperatures. The 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is a race across the nation's most forbidding, demanding, and dangerous territory. Competitors must be resourceful, rugged, and resilient. Often they must make life and death choices. These are the stories -- in their own words -- of men and women who challenge the elements. Many fans believe this is the best book written about the Iditarod.
"This book is terrific . . . I promise you, short of getting on a dog sled, traveling into the darkness and running the Iditarod yourself, this will be the next best thing to being there."
--Mitch Albom, ESPN / Detroit Free Press
