Saturday, November 9, 2013 – 1 PM to 4 PM, Seward Museum, Seward, Alaska

The First Great Race, Dan Seavey’s new book, is about Alaska’s 1973 Iditarod. Dan is the father and grandfather of two Iditarod champions and one of the men who organized and ran the first Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Dan’s release party is this coming Saturday at the Seward Museum in Seward, Alaska.

Dan acquired his first sled dog puppy a month after coming to Alaska. Dog mushing was fading, but a few visionaries stood in the gap and fought to preserve the sled dog. Dan was among them and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race was born. Later he would advocate tirelessly for the establishment and maintaining of the historical routes traversed by the ancestors of his beloved sled dogs. Now after 50 year of mushing, five

Iditarod races, witnessing both his son and grandson win the Iditarod, and induction into the Iditarod Hall of Fame, Dan tells his incredible story.

The First Great Race joins our other Iditarod books: Back of the Pack, The Adventures of Balto, Elim, Where’s the Boss, Solos Flite, Coho Waterboy, Eowyn and Linus on the Iditarod Trail, Hatchett,The Wannabe Sled Dog, Margaret and Midnight The Alaska Malamute, Margaret, Midnight, and the Alaskan Sled Dog Musher, Champion of Alaskan Huskies, Beyond Ophir, and Iditarod Alaska.

We congratulate Dan on his new book and wish him well at his release party, future signings, and more and more book sales.
