Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA--Two titles that offer background and a behind-the-scenes look at the well-known sled dog race. The oversized Heacox book features glorious photographs and minimal text. Sherwonit traces the evolution of Alaskan dog racing beginning in the early 1900s. The full-color and historical photographs enhance the textual description of the history and actual running of the race. Both books present musher comments about strategy, their dogs, and the physical strain to create a you-are-there feeling. If a choice must be made, go for the Sherwonit as it has more information.

From Library Journal

The annual (since 1973) Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, a grueling 1100 miles from Anchorage to Nome, is probably the best-known Alaskan sporting event. This profusely illustrated (80 color, 20 black-and-white photos) volume commemorates this grueling test of dogs and drivers. The short text gives a brief history of the Iditarod Trail, famous for the 1925 diphtheria serum run to Nome, and then describes the race route with highlights of the hazards facing participants and some of the exciting race finishes. This book is for browsing, sports, Arctic, and women's studies (the Iditarod is one event where women compete on equal terms with men) collections in public libraries.

Format: Paperback
Iditarod; The Great Race to Nome, is a informative book with abundant and excellent pictures to supplement the text. Iditarod; The Great Race to Nome, provides information about the gold rush, early sled dog races, and how the Iditarod dog sled race got started and more! It also includes tidbits of information about various topics that relate to the Iditarod, such as mushers. Wonderful pictures make the book even more memorable and worth buying. Overall this book is a great and informative book for all ages and is a personal recommendation if you need information about the Iditarod.

Format: Paperback
This is a well written, easy to follow book that provides a lot of information about the Iditarod. Beautiful pictures make the reading even more enjoyable. It's broken into chapters so it can be read bit by bit, but it reads like a novel and I read it practically all in one sitting! I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to learn about The Last Great Race!
