Publisher Comments:

Picking up where the best-selling IDITAROD CLASSICS left off, MORE IDITAROD CLASSICS introduces readers to more of the men and women who brave the 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome. And do they ever have stories to tell! In their own words, as told to award-winning reporter Lew Freedman, famed champions Doug Swingley, Martin Buser, Jeff King, and others share their very best stories--how they came to love the race, train their dogs and themselves, and battle all manner of winter hardships challenging the elements in what some have called the most extreme long-distance competition in the world. Alaskan heroes including Emmit Peters, Ramy Brooks, and DeeDee Jonrowe. explain how, for many of them, the Iditarod has become more of a way of life than an annual sporting event and how the work of training their dogs and making the run to Nome is punishing--but not punishing enough to deter them from trying again next year.
