Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blinding blizzards. Freezing wind. Paralyzingly cold temperatures. The 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is a race across the nation's most forbidding, demanding, and dangerous territory. The competitors in one of the world's toughest endurance contests 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.
