Overview

Raven is the story of a special dog and six Februarys in the Yukon. From the first rookie mistakes, to exhilarating solo sledding, something new is learned, and experienced, at every turn. Dog sledding is more than a sport and transportation. Dog sledding is the ultimate travel adventure.
Topping mountains, along the Klondike gold trail, behind a team of Alaskan Huskies, is life changing. Dogs lunge into harnesses, eager to run. At night, you care for your four legged children and then yourself. From your sleeping bag under a tree, at forty below zero, you see your dogs curled on straw, noses under tails. The evening fire gutters to glowing coals. This is perfection on this earth.
Fellow adventurers support, entertain and confound you, in camp and along the trail. A few are welded into your heart, in a way that cannot be forged, except by fire and ice.
"Dogs First" and last. Hundreds of dogs are in the packs that you join, for a day or a winter, charging into storms. Each dog loves to run more than to eat. A few special dogs become a part of your heart, in a way that can never be severed.
