About this title


Not your typical dog mushing book, this book focuses on unusual stories from the past and present. The book covers dog mushing history, sled dog breeding and raising of top dog breeds attributed to Alaska’s resourceful natives. Some of the mushing history includes mail carriers and freighters from the Gold Rush era. Famous dog teams through Alaskan dog mushing history, and many comparisons from top dog mushers throughout the north.
