Jim Lanier had a good life going: a great family, a successful pathologist, a sometimes singer. Then he went to the dogs, ran the Iditarod in 1979, and has never recovered. With that ’79 race as the book’s backbone, Jim tells its tale–entertaining, exciting, occasionally informative, and mostly the truth. From the bustle of metropolitan Anchorage to Front Street in Nome, it’s no how to do. If anything, it’s how not to–how not to give in to the urge to quit when the going gets tough, in life and in this metaphorical Iditarod.

Author : Jim Lanier

Born the year 1940 in Washington, DC and raised in Fargo, North Dakota, Jim Lanier has been an Alaskan since 1967. He was first brought north by the U. S. Public Health Service and for two years was a medical doctor at Anchorage's Alaska Native Medical Center. Then, after four years of specialty training at the Mayo Clinic, Jim practiced pathology for 33 years at Providence Hospital in Anchorage. Bit by the mushing bug in the 70s, he ran his first Iditarod Sled Dog Race in 1979. Over the years since he has entered and completed numerous other races and 15 more Iditarods (as of 2013), and the end is not in sight.
