The Iditarod Fact Book is jam-packed with fascinating facts and figures about the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race including information about the dogs, mushers, organizers and volunteers, sleds and gear, distances on the trail, and a complete text of the official rules. This guide is a "must-have" reference in any school classroom studying the Iditarod. Updated following the 2006 race, this handy guide has sections focusing on race champions, checkpoints, mushers' clothing, the expense of running the race, inherent dangers on the trail, entry requirements, food for the dogs and drivers, race history and the Iditarod Trail Committee, pronunciations, mandatory layovers, love for the dogs, mountain passes and weather, special prizes, sponsors, strategies, vet care, and much more. Included are 20 b&w photos by official Iditarod photographer Jeff Schultz and illustrations by official Iditarod artist Jon Van Zyle, a member of the Iditarod Hall of Fame.
