By telling the story of one race in detail, Firth follows the teams as they travel on the fractured ice of the Yukon River, through rugged, northern wilderness, over windswept mountains, in blizzards and bone-chilling cold. Yukon Quest shows in vivid detail the enormous commitment involved in caring for up to 14 dogs in a team. The book also includes anecdotes from all the races and a list of all the mushers who have ever participated, along with race results.
Author John Firth provides the reader with a very intimate view of the Yukon Quest dog sled race which runs between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska.
