Running North is a spirited account of how Ann Cook, her husband, George, and their young daughter moved to Alaska to run the Yukon Quest, the toughest dog sled race in the world.

In elegant prose, Cook chronicles their adventure -- driving a beaten truck along her husband's route, conquering grueling physical challenges in the face of minus 60 degrees Fahrenheit weather, holding a family together, and raising and training an unforgettable pack of Siberian Huskies.

This is a beautiful story of physical and mental strength, endurance, family, unity, mental anguish, human connection with wildlife, and one very tough race.
