Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Picking up where the best-selling Iditarod Classics left off, this new collection of insightful and hair-raising stories introduces readers to more of the men and women who brave the annual 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome. Champions Doug Swingley, Martin Buser, Jeff King, and others tell how they came to love the race, how they train their dogs and themselves, and how they challenge the elements of The Last Great Race. For Alaskan heroes such as DeeDee Jonrowe, Emmit Peters, and Ramy Brooks, the Iditarod is always punishing but not punishing enough to deter them from trying again next year.
