Iditarod free pdf Marchez! - A race for survival When Rhodes Delaney challenged James Alderston Whitbury III to a grudge match she chose the most grueling of all tests - the Iditarod: a lethal dogsled race across the perilous wastelands of barren Alaska. Through life-sapping storms, howling blizzards, and deadly sub-zero temperatures, the racers must struggle over treacherous mountain passes where the sun's rays never reach, cross frozen rivers risking the icy torrents below, and pass enraged bull moose, ravenous bears - and the world's largest, hungriest wolf pack. In Iditarod, Andre Jute puts the reader's feet on the ice and on the runners for twelve hundred hazardous miles of the last great race across the last dangerous frontier as the exhausted bodies and hallucinating minds of the contestants battle towards the moment of truth - when Man and Nature exact the ultimate reckoning from each other. Iditarod is at once a love story, a great adventure, and a brilliant word portrait of the world's most spectacular and least-known land. First published in 1990, Iditarod is fully revised for this 21st anniversary edition by CoolMain Press. Now with a superb map of the race. Plus a value-added website for readers to share in the excitement of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race."
