This book is a real treat for those who love sled dogs, and long to travel in wide open spaces. The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race involves travelling across over a thousand miles of frozen wastes, mountains and rivers, and just completing the course is a serious test in endurance and ingenuity. The description of the landscape, and teamwork between dogs and mushers is enough to make you want to hop on an aeroplane and take part, or try to take part in something on a smaller scale in Scotland.
