Cold Hands Warm Heart

“The proper function of man is to live,
not to exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying
to prolong them.
I shall use my time.”
– Jack London

Champion musher Jeff King is a man who lives by those words. When King crossed the finish line of the 2006 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, he entered a small, elite club of mushers who have won the 1,000-mile race four times. And yet his record of victories in dozens of short- and middle-distance races, as well as conquering the challenging Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, placed King in a society of one: the ‘winningest’ musher in sled-dog sports history. From his scientific methods of feeding and training dogs to his calculating trail strategies and innovative sled designs, King has been the one to watch, year after year.

A natural-born storyteller as well as a gifted athlete, King shares a lifetime of adventure stories in these pages. Since the release of his first collection of trail stories, fans have been begging for “More!” And in this newly expanded second edition, they’re finally getting their wish – and a deeper look into a life well-lived.

Zig The Warrior Princess

Zig is the princess of the dog yard in this romping story about a hard-working, well-loved Alaska sled dog at Husky Homestead. How do we know she’s a favorite? Well, the boss lets her sleep in the cabin and ride in the truck cab. Spoiled? Never! Heard it from Zig herself, as she remembers puppyhood, training with the “big dogs,” and how she discovered she was born to be a warrior, not just a princess.

By Tricia Brown with Jeff King
