Debbie Moderow – FAST INTO THE NIGHT: A WOMAN, HER DOGS, AND THEIR JOURNEY NORTH ON THE IDITAROD TRAIL
At age forty-seven, a mother of two, Debbie Moderow was not your average Iditarod musher but that’s where she found herself when, less than 200 miles from the finish line, her dogs decided they were done running. FAST INTO THE NIGHT (February 2, 2016) is the gripping story of Moderow’s journeys along the Iditarod trail with her team of spunky huskies: Taiga and Su, Piney and Creek, Nacho and Zeppy, Juliet and the headstrong leader, Kanga. The first failed attempt crushed Moderow’s confidence, but after reconnecting with her dogs she returned and ventured again to Nome, pushing through injuries, hallucinations, epic storms, flipped sleds, and clashing personalities, both human and canine. And she prevailed. Part adventure, part love story, part inquiry into the mystery of the connection between humans and dogs, this is an exquisitely written memoir of a woman, her dogs, and what can happen when someone puts herself in that place between daring and doubt—and soldiers on.
