30 Day Book Challenge: Day 5

Day 5- A Non-fiction book that you actually enjoyed
 Winterdance: The Fine Madness
of Running the Iditarod by Gary Paulsen
Paulsen and his team of dogs endured snowstorms, frostbite, dogfights, moose attacks, sleeplessness, and hallucinations in the relentless push to go on. Map and color photographs.
I read this book mostly because my husband suggested it and he rarely reads anything other than magazines, so I figured that if he liked it I probably would too. I typically don't read non-fiction, but I liked this book more than I thought I would. Mostly because there were some very funny things that happened to him while he was training his dogs. His training methods were trail and error... with extra error.

A good read if you are interested in sled dogs or want to learn more about the Iditarod. Gary Paulsen is one of my favorite writers and I wasn't disappointed with this book even though it wasn't my usual type of read.
