About the Author

Kristin Knight Pace was born in Fort Worth, TX and graduated with honors from The University of Montana with a degree in photojournalism. After writing for several newspapers and magazines, she left the publishing world to lead a life worth writing about — one of adventure. In 2009, she took to the road with her two dogs and drove north to Denali National Park, where her quiet life revolved around the nurturing of 10 dogs and the maintenance of a remote cabin. What was supposed to be a five-month stay turned into years on end, and now she has found and married the love of her life, become the Lead Backcountry Ranger for Denali National Park, and realized her dream of running dogs through the wilderness of Alaska. Kristin finished the 2015 Yukon Quest and the 2016 Iditarod.

This book has me so emotional. I immediately liked Kristin and found her experiences so interesting. From trail building in Montana to house/dog sitting in Alaska. Its a dream of mine to visit Alaska (a place so different than my sweltering Georgia home) and Kristin really brings you there to the brutal beauty. Not to mention the absolute love and connection she makes you feel for the beautiful dogs. While reading I actually went online to look at Hey Moose! Kennels website to see pictures of the dogs. The first picture I saw was of Solo and I started crying. It was like seeing an old friend after years of being apart. I recommend this book for people interested in dog mushing, the Alaskan homestead lifestyle, and empowering stories abut women who work hard for their dreams

You can never go wrong with a memoir that is about a woman finding her way in this world in the most unusual place with dogs! This was a quick read for myself that had me flipping the pages just to see what will happen next for Kristin. You get the heartache that Kristen went through in her first marriage that lead her to the place that she would finally find her happy ending. Just reading about how she survived that first winter in Alaska made myself remember the time that I lived in North Dakota and could truly relate to her saying that there is a temperature below freezing that isn't so bad but knowing what just a couple of degrees can mean as well. I think the whole finding herself while running a sled dog kennel was cool in the sense that Kristen discovered how tough she really is while finding love all at the same time. If anything, this is a great book for anyone who loves dogs and loves to read about a person who finds their way in this world that starts with heartache and leads to a happy ending! Thank You to Kristin Knight Pace for sharing your story with the world! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher!
