From the Author
My sister Miki and I learned to run dogs on our own. There werent many mushers around where we grew up, and few mushing books were available. Even today, with a burst of mushing books coming out, there are few, if any, comprehensive references for the serious musher.
We wrote this book for mushers who are tired of gleaning information frim newsletters, advertisements, and pet-owner handbooks. We have attempted to compile information that, until now, has been widely scattered and not readily available. Hopefully this will get information to mushers while saving them the trouble of doing all the research.
We wrote this book for mushers who already know how to hook up their dogs and stand on a sled. The beginning musher will find our book useful but should couple it with a book covering the elementary details. (A glossary ant the back of this book will help beginners, and additional books are listed in the references.)
Dog Driver is not just for competitive mushers; it is for mushing adventurers and mushers who run dogs for transportation or as a source of income, and for recreational mushers who want to understand their dogs and the sport better.
The knowledge that we gradually accumulated through our experiences (with many a bumped shin and bruised ego), and the knowledge that we gained from other dog drivers and literature, has moved us to share with other ushersnovices and professionals alike. This book is the result. Lets hook up and get going.
