Iditarod Dreams: A Year in the Life of Alaskan Sled Dog Racer Deedee Jonrowe (Paperback)
DeeDee Jonrowe loves dogs, and her consuming passion is the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Winter and summer, virtually day and night (even in her dreams ), Jonrowe and her huskies prepare for the thousand-mile race across Alaska. Jonrowe is the world's leading woman musher. Through 2009, she had finished the Iditarod race twenty-six times, including a dozen finishes in the top ten. She has won numerous awards recognizing her high standard of care for her dogs. Iditarod Dreams is an absorbing, personal account of a year in the life of this remarkable woman living on the edge of the wilderness with her husband, Mike, and enough howling huskies to populate a small town. It is about the special bond between a woman and her dogs, and about the astonishing measure of skill and stamina needed to compete in the Iditarod.
