    1. Several different and quite exciting trips by dogsled are described in this book Hudson Stuck must have been very capable to do the traveling he did, and then taking the effort to write about it All the trips were very strenuous and extremely dangerous in places This is the earliest description I had read yet of Alaska It is fascinating to see which places were populated at that time, and why The author s description of the different native groups at that time is also very interesting So is the [...]

    2. Historical travel in the Alaska interior by dog sled Fascinating as some of the routes are the same followed by the Iditarod race.

    3. This book gives a wonderful glimpse into a lifestyle that I never will have an opportunity to experience I don t mind missing out on temperatures that are 40 or 50 below zero, but I loved reading about it I enjoyed seeing the mountains of Alaska through the author s eyes, and traveling with him on frozen rivers with incredible names like Koyukuk and Kuskokwim I got out a map of Alaska and traced his route, which was also fun Highly recommended for adventurers who can t always leave home.

    4. An excellent story from the mind of a man who saw it all along thousands of miles of trails He also just happened to summit Mt McKinley with the first group of successful climbers Great descriptions about teaching native children, his trials on the trails, and the hardships he faced with some dogs and people.
