MY REVIEW:

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook for voluntary review consideration.

Gutsy and determined, Debbie Moderow’s Iditarod tale will appeal to dog lovers and outdoor enthusiasts!

I’ve always been fascinated with the Iditarod, and I have a soft spot for huskies. My kids and I have even been lucky enough to experience being pulled by sled dogs, which was a lot faster than I expected! I enjoyed Debbie Moderow’s thirst for adventure. She first attempted the Iditarod in 2003 and, although she did not complete it, this rookie only fell 200 miles short of finishing the 1,000 mile race. I respect Debbie’s way of thinking and connecting with her dogs. She’s not heavy-handed and cares that her team finishes (or not) in good spirits. Her husband, Mark, finished the Iditarod the following year. Not to be outdone by her son (who completed the Junior Iditarod) and husband, Debbie was determined to try again in 2005. She faced numerous obstacles, from the stomach flu to her dogs rebelling and refusing to run, but that did not sway her perseverance.

I enjoyed the details of the prep work involved for preparing for such a grueling trek, and the connection that Debbie has with each of her dogs is so evident as she describes each one’s personality and strengths.

Narrator Emily Durante is new to me, and I think she aptly conveyed Debbie’s highs and lows. Her pacing was good, and her voice was fitting to Debbie’s character. Here's a sample of the narration:
