Mushing Through The Snow

Playing in the snow is not for everyone.  And traveling through the snow for more than a thousand miles on a sled is even more limited in appeal. 

But Debbie Clarke Moderow saw the appeal in Alaska's famed Iditarod sled dog race, taking on the challenge in 2005. 

She tells her story of mushing and slushing with her beloved dogs in a memoir, Fast Into The Night.  We unpack her story on a visit to The Exchange.
