AKIAK
A TALE OF THE IDITAROD

by Robert Blake

One of the most amazing races of the 20th Century is the Iditarod, a dog sled race that began in 1967 across 1,161 frozen miles of Alaska, demanding its dogs run almost 100 miles a day, pulling a sled with their musher aboard.  Although Akiak has raced the Iditarod before, this ten-year-old huskie, a determined lead dog, knows that this is her last opportunity to win.  Fighting injury, blizzard, and the rules of the race, her courage and determination lead her to attempt the impossible.
