Cold Hands Warm Heart
review by Theresa Daily
Two paws up...Wow!
This book is loaded with information
for fans and the outdoor adventurer. You can't help but
dive into this book and visualize the stories Jeff writes
about. He opens up his life, his family and his dogs to
the readers in a way that makes you feel like you've known
him all your life. Excellent writing. Plenty of never before
seen photos of Jeff and his family, beautiful artwork from
the sketch pad of talented Donna Gates King scattered throughout
the book. This is the kind of book you read cover to cover
(272 pages) and place on the book shelf for keeps.

Known as the "winningest
musher in the world" Jeff King is one of the top endurance
sled dog racers competing today. His record includes championship
finishes in the legendary, 1100-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race,
the 1000-mile Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, and
the Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race, among many others. King
moved to Alaska in 1975 and began his inspirational racing
career by 1980.
These autobiographical short stories offer a glimpse into
the heart of a champion, the rugged Alaskan lifestyle and
the charismatic world of dogs. King opens his heart and
mind to reveal an intimate view of himself and his unique
life as he shares over thirty years of experiences. He sculpts
an image of the true Alaska depicting the spirit of adventure
and self-sufficiency. From a wall tent on the trap-line
to the Iditarod trail in the heat of competition to the
tragedy at his homestead near Denali National Park, he will
carry you along in his sled and give you the ride of a lifetime.
Donna Gates King' s brilliant
images of Alaska assist in rendering clear understanding
of the life and challenges of the north.
Iditarod Champion Joe Runyan
blends his own expertise to enhance your voyage through
the pages of Jeff King' s life.
