One man's story of the 1025-mile dog-sled race across North America's frozen wastes.
It is winter in the sub-arctic, a season of extreme cold, storms and 17-hour nights, where the aurora borealis flames green and pink overhead, the snow underfoot is so crystalline it chafes like sandpaper and every incoming breath is so cold it burns like fire.
This is the Yukon Territory, where every year - equipped with specialist equipment and a team of huskies - an intrepid group of highly skilled competitors penetrates this porcelain world at the start of the annual Yukon Quest, a 1025-mile-long dog-sled race which ends in the heart of Alaska.
Award-winning journalist John Balzar decides that he too must take part in this incredible, epic event. Beautifully written and packed with high-octane adventures, this is his astonishing story.
