Stirring passages detailing the rigors of dogsledding, the bond between man and beast, and the importance of a good lead dog make for irresistible Jack London kind of stuff.--David Stress
Sequence by sequence the Salisburys have written not only about a race but also about our Alaskan history and the hardy people who first came, both Native and non-Native, to make our history so rich.--Velma Wallis, author of Two Old Women
A scrupulously researched, cleanly written account that makes for a rollicking good adventure.--Alice King
This a moving story, superbly researched and deftly told.--Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm
A classic tale of man against nature.--Sara Wheeler
