Men. And women. Dogs. The thrill of extreme adventure... the agony of extreme defeat. These are the elements that make up the famous annual Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome. Now, just in time for the Iditarod's 30th anniversary, comes this new edition of one of the best-selling books on 'the Big Trail.' Sherwonit recounts the history and past three decades of the Iditarod and looks forward to its promising future, while photographer Jeff Schultz provides thrilling new photos, from the arctic landscape to the competitors and the dogs they rely on.
