I m a sucker for dog stories and the Iditarod in particular I have read several books and found that this one like the others had its own special charms Jeff King was generous to his rivals in his descriptions of them A warming book. Interesting book Got it before we went to Alaska and to Jeff King s Husky Homestead Great insight into the life of a musher and the races That aid I would only give the tour a 3 Jeff wasn t there and I learned a lot from the book that the tour. Known As The Winningest Musher In The World, Jeff King Remains One Of The Top Mushers In The History Of Sled Dog Sports Since His First Race In , King And His Well Trained Teams Of Alaska Huskies Have Racked Up Many Thousands Of Training Miles And Trail Hours The Result Win After Win After Win, Crossing The Finish Line First In Than A Dozen Major Races, Including The Two Internationally Known Giants The Iditarod And The Yukon Quest In The Process, King Has Also Racked Up Thirty Years Of First Person Stories That Offer A Glimpse Into The Heart Of A Champion, The Rugged Alaskan Lifestyle, And The Charismatic World Of Dogs Jeff King tells his own story of following his dream to become an Alaskan, lived in the bush and ultimately run Huskies The book is entertaining and exciting but a bit disjointed at times since most chapters stand as rather isolated vignettes and not always in chronological order However it gives a good look at King s journey to a multi time champion musher and winner of both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod as well as many shorter races. Great read about Jeff King s life If you have visited Denali or have this destination on your bucket list a must read.Also visit his Alaska Husky ranch what a great experience. If you are planning to visit Denali, Alaska, this book should be one of the top books on your required reading list BEFORE your visit If your only definition of the Iditarod is that it is an annual dog sled race between two places in Alaska where huskies pull a sled with a driver, this is a must read book If you enjoy reading a book that you cannot put down until you finish the chapter, Cold Hands, Warm Heart is for you Jeff may have cold, frost bitten hands but his warm heart is full of love for his family, friends, and animals both tame and wild.I met Jeff and his family on Father s Day this year 2008 at the Husky Homestead in Denali and my one regret was that I did not realize how fortunate my family and I were to be there until AFTER I read his book on my return home Jeff is not only driven to be an Iditarod winner but than that, he is driven to make to make this world a better place for other people. Great adventure in Alaska We recently went and saw the puppies at his place and he spoke of the idirod experience. A great book filled with stories of the trail Trials and tribulations of one mans journey with dog sledding. Tr s appr ci Great story for adventure readers Jeff King is a veteran sledder.his antidotes and experiences brings the Iditarod run to heart A great reading experience for anyone.especially reluctant non reading adolescent males.
