pick a leader and how to train them.
Yukon Alone - John Balzar **
I found this book hard to
get through. it was written during the same Yukon Quest

stories. Also John Balzar is not a racer, he is a
journalist following the race.

This book has a section
called Dog Sledding On Baffin Island. It is an
interesting book about the author and his adventures. The
author moved to Alaska with his children, and he picked
up various dogs to make a sled team. After training he
went to the Arctic via a dog team, with an interesting
Racing The White Silence
- Adam Killick ***
I thought that this book was
well written. Adam Killick is not a musher, but he has
been a handler during The Yukon Quest a couple of times.
I would have liked to see him do a little more research
in some areas, but he made it an interesting story.

This is a cute book written
by an author who has had experience with animal behavior.
She wrote this book about her dogs and how they all live
together. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas also wrote The Hidden
Life Of Dogs ** I do not recommend this book simply
because I do not like the idea of Siberian Husky running
around loose on the streets of Boston.
