On the latest edition of Mush! You Huskies, we interviewed author and journalist Craig Medred about his book, Graveyard of Dreams.
Graveyard of Dreams is a book about all those who aspired and dreamed of running the Iditarod. The Iditarod is known as The Last Great Race and to many they sacrifice it all in order to chase a dream often find out why it is called that.
Medred has covered the Iditarod for more than 25 years at the Anchorage Daily News and the 2010 race for the Alaska Dispatch on a snow machine covering the “back of the packer’s” and telling their stories.
Graveyard of Dreams is about perseverance, determination and sometimes the will to survive in some of the harshest weather in the world. This book is a must read for any musher attempting to run the Iditarod and chase the illusive belt buckle that is awarded to all those who finish the 1,049 quest from Anchorage to Nome.
Mush! You Huskies is hosted by Robert and Michele Forto. Robert is in Alaska training for his first Iditarod and running his qualifying races this year. He is racing under the Team Ineka banner. Michele is the lead trainer at Denver Dog Works and specializes in services dogs and board and train programs.
