Synopsis: Once infected with the mushing virus, there is no cure -- there is only the trail" Don Bowers learned the truth of these words as he lived his dream of running Alaska’s grueling 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. With no mushing experience and little money, but with a spirit of adventure and support from friends, he started from scratch to put together a team. Over the next two years, he discovered that becoming a serious musher is not to be undertaken by the faint of heart, or by those who cannot learn to laugh at themselves and keep going in the face of daunting difficulties and dangers. By the time he eventually pulled under the famous burled arch at the end of Front Street in Nome, his perspective on life had been changed forever by his dogs and by the staggering scope and intensity of the Iditarod. This is Everyman’s Iditarod, a tribute to the dedicated dreamers and their dogs who run to Nome in back of the pack with no hope of prize money or glory. This is truly "the rest of the story" of the Last Great Race on Earth.

From the Back Cover: Don Bowers has accurately captured this marvelous transformation in Back of the Pack, and has beautifully conveyed the poetry and sense of awe and respect that come with it. He faithfully shows us the joy and work and heartbreak and intensity of learning how to drive dogs, culminating in an incredible journey to Nome in the 1,100-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Before he could make it to the finish line on Front Street, he discovered that he and his dogs were capable of far more than he ever thought possible. Don's story is a true-life example of learning how to "Dream big and dare to fail."
Norman Vaughan

After reading Back of the Pack you'll watch the rookies heading down Fourth Avenue at the start of the Iditarod with a much better insight. Don draws a clear picture of what it's like to be a neophyte musher. Anyone with an interest in dogs--or who just likes a good read--will thoroughly enjoy it. This may be the best book yet about the Iditarod.
Phil Meyer, D.V.M. (20-year Iditarod and Junior Iditarod race veterinarian)
