Race Across Alaska: First Woman to win the Iditarod Tells Her Story by Libby Riddles
"Libby Riddles wanted an adventure. At age 16 she left home for the snowy wilderness of Alaska, the Last Frontier. There her love of animals drew her to the sport of sled dog racing. When she entered the Iditarod, the famous marathon from Anchorage to Nome, she was just another Iditarod Nobody. Twelve hundred miles later, having conquered blizzards, extreme cold, and exhaustion, she and her dogs crossed the final stretch of sea ice, miles ahead of the nearest competitor... and suddenly she realized: I will be the first woman to win the Iditarod.
This is the story of a courageous woman and her heroic dogs. This is the story of Libby Riddles' adventure."
