Updated and expanded with 10 new chapters and some 90 new photos, "Backstage Iditarod, 2nd Edition," picks up where the first edition left off. Written for the fans of the Iditarod who read the basics in "Backstage Iditarod," it offers updated information as well as ten new chapters and nearly 90 new photos. You'll get not only a peek behind the scenes of Alaska's Last Great Race, but insight into what is involved in putting on the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. You'll get a glimpse of recent champions Lance Mackey, John Baker and Dallas Seavey, as well as share in the rookie memories of Jodi Bailey, the first female musher to run and complete both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod in the same year as a rookie. Philip Walters, who's still in the dreaming stages, revisits his first 200-mile race and shares what he learned about his team and himself. DeeDee Jonrowe tells why she races and gives us insight into her kennel and the bond with her dogs. "Backstage Iditarod, 2nd Edition" also expands its look at the volunteers and fans of the Iditarod and ... more. Much more, including a look at how high performance dog kibble is made. Just as "Backstage Iditarod" showed what's involved in putting on the race, this new edition offers that version in its complete form as well as more insight into what makes the Iditarod so special for so many.
