This is the definitive story of the Iditarod, the dogsled race that has been run for over a century–told in brisk inviting stories and fully illustrated with color photographs, including updated information through the 2018 race.
The famed 1000-mile dogsled race from Anchorage in Southeast Alaska to Nome on the Bering Sea is a test of endurance, both human and canine. The great history of the race has unfolded in the accounts of mushers and dog teams, fierce weather, accidents and good luck–with personalities like Joe Redington Sr., Rick Swenson, and Libby Riddles being joined by Lance Mackey, DeeDee Jonrowe, and Mitch & Dallas Seavey in recent years. The book is thoroughly illustrated with Jeff Schultz’s photography, including coverage of the most recent runnings of the Iditarod.
