History

Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof, Alaska Natives: Blazing the Iditarod Trail, by Judy Ferguson and the Yukon-Koyukuk School District

Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof is a story of classic Alaska, in the village where the Iditarod began. It features the courageous mushers who broke trail when the Great Race was only a rough trapline experience. At the Iditarod’s inception in 1973, Ken Chase and George Attla were finishers, followed in 1974 by Jerry Riley, Rudy Demoski, and Warner Vent. The following year Henry Beatus and Emmitt Peters came on, the year Emmitt won, and changed the race from campfire camaraderie to a truly competitive contest.
