Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At forty-one, husband and father Brian Patrick O'Donoghue feels his youth slipping away.... 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.

Synopsis:

With wry humor and a journalist's eye for fascinating details, O'Donoghue tells of his wild run in the 1998 Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, a 1000-mile run from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, to Fairbanks, Alaska.
