Description

"New illustrations enliven this detailed account, first published in 1986, of Riddles' record-setting performance at the 1985 Iditarod. Riddles tells her own story: how she became interested in mushing, the training that prepared her for the event, and, finally, a day-by-day account of the extreme, grueling conditions during the race, covering over 1,000 miles of Alaska's roughest country.... Riddles' live-off-the-land lifestyle and unusual workout practices (chocolate and seal oil are her power foods) will intrigue young athletes and pioneer-wannabes, and her passion for her dogs and devotion to their care will draw animal lovers." — Gillian Engberg, Booklist
