The Alaska Adventures of Iditarod Champion Dick Mackey

Dick Mackey, one of Alaska's greatest storytellers and one of its toughest men, approaches life in the North as one continuous adventure. He's lived ten lifetimes worth of adventure and Lew Freedman tells all. As a founder of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, Mackey is best known for the most dramatic finish ever in the history of the race--his one-second victory over Rick Swenson after an unbelievable two-week, 1,149-mile race from Anchorage.

"This paperback is essential armchair reading for any moterhomer who has traveled in Alaska or hopes to do so."
    --Gordon & Janet Groene, authors of

"ONE SECOND TO GLORY is a well-written account of an individualist who has lived life mostly on his own terms."
    --Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
