Lost in a ground blizzard, hearing the footfall of a polar bear and detained in a Soviet Gulag-style prison, Jim Lanier has not even reached the starting line of his 1995 Hope sled dog race in Russia. In this book, Jim tells his story of that race. As in his first book, Beyond Ophir, it is entertaining, exciting, occasionally informative, and mostly the truth. From Nome to the frozen, storm-swept trails of Chukotka and back again, it is an entry into an alien country, culture, and mushing subculture, something that both the reader and Jim will not soon forget.

Born 1940 in Washington, D.C. 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 general medical doctor at Anchorage's Alaska Native Medical Center. After four years of specialty training at the Mayo Clinic, Jim practiced pathology for 33 years at Providence Hospital in Anchorage.

He is the author of Beyond Ophir, a book about his first Iditarod sled dog race in 1979, and now Race for Hope. He has competed in numerous other races and 20 more Iditarods, making him the only musher to have participated in all six calendar decades the Iditarod has been run.
