1 Balzar, John Yukon Alone: The World’s Toughest Adventure Race - Signed First
New York Henry Holt & Co. 2000 First printing Hardcover Fine near fine Signed
Hardcover with dust jacket, xi 304 pp. Fine in near fine jacket. Signed by Balzar on the title page. “The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race is one of the most challenging sporting events in the world. Every February, a handful of hardy souls spends over two weeks racing sleds pulled by fourteen dogs over 1,023 miles of frozen rivers, icy mountain passes, and spruce forests as big as entire states, facing temperatures that drop to forty degrees below zero on nights that are seventeen hours long. Why would anyone want to enter this race? John Balzar-who moved to Alaska and lived on the trail-treats us to a vivid account of the grueling race itself, offering an insightful look at the men and women who have moved to this rugged and beautiful place. Readers will also be fascinated by Balzar's account of what goes into the training and care of the majestic dogs who pull the sleds and whose courage, strength, and devotion make them the true heroes of this story.” No writing, highlighting, names, or other marks. The dust jacket is in a fresh mylar cover. We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags.
