Later today, the leaders of the 2012 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race will depart White Mountain for a 77-mile sprint to Nome, Alaska, the final leg of the 975-mile event called "The Last Great Race on Earth". Dallas Seavey, 25, is currently in the lead, poised to become the youngest Iditarod winner ever. An hour behind is Aliy Zirkle, who, if she can catch Seavey, would become the third woman to win the race (the first was Libby Riddles in 1985.

The Iditarod Trail, now a National Historic Trail, had its beginnings as a mail and supply route from the coastal towns of Seward and Knik to the interior mining camps at Flat, Ophir, Ruby and beyond to the west coast communities of Unalakleet, Elim, Golovin, White Mountain and Nome. The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race has over time grown and helped to accomplished the goals that Joe Redington Sr. lived. An Event for All Alaska. Anchorage is the starting line.

In 1978 Butcher entered her first Iditarod, finishing 19th. The next year she finished ninth, and soon after the race she helped lead the first sled-dog team to reach the summit of Mount McKinley, a peak in south central Alaska that is the highest in North America. Butcher placed fifth in the Iditarod in both 1980 and 1981. She finished second in 1982, ninth in 1983, and second in 1984. In 1985 her team was attacked by a moose and she had to withdraw from the race. In 1986, however, she won the race with a record time of 11 days 15 hours 6 minutes (since broken)  . the end of the trail in Nome.

Every year, the sleepy 2,000 person town of Willow, Alaska is inundated with visitors eager to observe-or partake in- the Last Great Race on Earth. This year, a worrisome new tradition for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race persisted. In 2003, the race route had to be moved from its usual starting point in Willow to Fairbanks because the winter hadn’t provided enough snow for good racing terrain. It was moved again in 2015. This year, a month before the race, officials decided to relocate a third time after determining that snow in three or four sections of the track was not sufficient

Beginning with Murder On The Iditarod Trail, her tales of life and death in Alaska have never failed to impress me. In this story, Jessie Arnold is once again testing herself and her dogs on a long and difficult race, the Yukon Quest. The courage and stamina needed for such an endeavor is brought vividly to life by Sue Henry. The mystery, although a good one, is almost secondary to the wonderful descriptions of the snow covered wilds of Alaska. But each is good enough to stand alone. I loved getting to know alaska and their way of life. I always thought dog sleding was cruel untill she explains how much the dogs love it. SUE HENRY is the greatest!
