True Stories About the Pilots Who Fly for Alaska's Famous Sled Dog Race
Autor: Ted Mattson
Ted Mattson tells a quarter-century's worth of tales of the volunteer pilots' exploits above the trail--some funny, some somber--about what happens when a team of rambunctious dogs decides to exit the cabin of a fabric-covered airplane, about landing on sea ice in whiteout conditions, about miracle rescues and tragedies. It's the story of a sidelight to the Iditarod race that can be as exciting and as colorful as the main event.
