A captivating memoir of one woman’s attempt to finish the Iditarod, led by her team of spunky huskies with whom she shares a fascinating and inextricable bond At age forty-seven, a mother of two, Debbie Moderow was not your average musher in the Iditarod, but that’s where she found herself when, less than 200 miles from the finish line, her dogs decided they didn’t want to run anymore. After all her preparation, after all the careful management of her team, and after their running so well for over a week, the huskies balked. But the sting of not completing the race after coming so far was nothing compared to the disappointment Moderow felt in having lost touch with her dogs. Fast into the Night is the gripping story of Moderow’s journeys along the Iditarod trail with her team of spunky huskies: Taiga and Su, Piney and Creek, Nacho and Zeppy, Juliet and the headstrong leader, Kanga. The first failed attempt crushed Moderow’s confidence, but after reconnecting with her dogs she returned and ventured again to Nome, pushing through injuries, hallucinations, epic storms, flipped sleds, and clashing personalities, both human and canine. And she prevailed. Part adventure, part love story, part inquiry into the mystery of the connection between humans and dogs, Fast into the Night is an exquisitely written memoir of a woman, her dogs, and what can happen when someone puts herself in that place between daring and doubt—and soldiers on.

A grieving young mother and recovering alcoholic, Andi Nowak flees high above Canada's Arctic Circle seeking peace and solace, but instead finds intrigue, danger and romance. Haunted by memories of her daughter, Andi ventures north to the remote town of Inuvik and a challenging career at Tuktu Aviation. The discovery of a rich kimberlite pipe near the small community creates a diamond-mining frenzy, and more flying for Tuktu. When Andi discovers that their Twin Otter aircraft are being used for unauthorized purposes, her queries to the flight crew are first nonchalantly, and later violently, dismissed. Andi enlists the aid of her new friend, local gallery owner and dog-sledding enthusiast, North Ruben. Together they plot a scheme to trace the aircraft's mysterious movements, but their plan backfires with devastating - and deadly - results. Fear and anger spark Andi's ravaged emotions, and although she resists, her friendship with North heats with passion she never thought possible....

Lisa Frederic was just your average Alaska fisherwoman when a vacation in Nome to see the burled-arch finish of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race changed her life forever. The mushers’ devotion to their dogs and the sheer grit required to complete the epic race lit a spark in Lisa. She started as a volunteer at checkpoints along the race, became an apprentice to Iditarod champion Jeff King, and, finally, mushed her own dog team in the world’s greatest sled dog race. Running with Champions is Lisa’s riveting account of her amazing journey, from head-bashing encounters with trees along the trails to the panic of losing control of a powerful team of dogs in the wilds of Alaska, all leading to her first attempt as a forty-something at the Big One: the 1,049-mile Iditarod. Lisa’s inspiring story speaks to everyone who has ever followed a dream and found that the dream realized is even bigger than the imagined one.

What happens when you die? What would happen to you if you died and then came back to the world you left and realized that there simply is no death? What would your life be like? This is Patricia Grabow’s story. She died in a car accident in London June 16, 1980. This is what happened to her as experienced death than then returned to a life in which she faced challenges she could hardly have imagined. It is her discovery of love, salvation, and soul-mates with no religious overtones---just the “love to the millionth power” she experienced when she died---- scattered throughout her struggle to save herself and her children. It is the journey of a truth-sayer as she was led to those who cared that her family survive and that her story be told and the three books generated throughout the experience tell what death and life actually meant through “new eyes.”
