A wonderful book that I think I will be keeping. Gary talks truthfully about his obsession with dog racing. He ends up doing the Iditarod race across Alaska, but the first half of the book is concerned with a warts-and-all portrayal of his first forays into the sport, crashes, embarassments and lost dogs and all. There is some upsetting stuff, but it is in context and not problematic. A lyrical and unusual book. Thanks Linda Gillard for the recommendation!
