When I picked up CHAMPION of Alaskan Huskies----Joe Redington, Sr., Father of the Iditarod by Katie Mangelsdorf, I misread the title and vaguely expected to read about a Joe Redington champion husky. It did not take long for me to realize that the book’s focus is the life of Joe Redington, who championed Alaskan huskies, a fact I already knew.
I knew about Redington and the Iditarod since I live within an easy drive of the Iditarod Headquarters and have taken countless friends and relative visito

As much as I follow the Iditarod, I had never known much about it's founder, Joe Redington, Sr. This biography captures his spirit and "can do" attitude. It's a five star book if you have in interest in the Iditarod
