Iditarod Classics, by Lew Freedman
Blinding blizzards. Freezing wind. Paralyzing cold temperatures. Iditarod Classics by Lew Freedman (136 pages) is the stunning record of the 1,100-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race; a race across the nation’s most forbidding, demanding, and dangerous territory. Competitors must be resourceful, rugged, and resilient. Often they must make life and death choices. These are the stories–in their own words–of men and women who challenge the elements. Many fans believe this is the best book written about the Iditarod.
