Summary
Tells the story of the author's hunger for remote, wild places, which take her across America and then to Alaska, where she finds her true home in its vast and rugged landscape. She and her husband build a log cabin miles from the nearest road; after tragic loss, Keith and her infant daughter must push on alone in the Alaskan backcountry. Long-distance dog sledding opens a door to a new existence. Racing across Alaska offers the best of all worlds by combining raw wildnerness with solitude and athleticism
