SouthWestZippy | 905 comments Winterdance The Fine Madness of Running the Iditarod by Gary Paulsen
5 stars
Taken from the inside cover of the book. "Winterdance is an unforgettable account of Gary Paulsen's most ambitious guest: to know a world beyond his knowing, to train for and run the Iditarod."
Gary Paulsen goes into the race with no real clue on what is going to happen to him and his dogs during the 1,180 mile race across the Alaska. Paulsen gives a very straight forward account of the ordeals he encounters. Some of things he witness from other races and non races are disgusting, heartbreaking and humorous. None of the his description are over the top but are very real look into life while pushing your body and soul thought his unforgiving terrain. I highly recommend this book if you like reading about others adventures and life learning lessons.
