Shop: IndieBound, Barnes & Noble
Part adventure, part love story, part inquiry into the mystery
of connection between humans and dogs, Fast into the Night
is an exquisitely written memoir of a woman, her dogs, and
what can happen when someone puts herself in that place between daring and doubtand soldiers on.
"Not only does Fast into the Night detail in spare and honest prose all the grit and excitement that is the Iditarod, but its author aptly takes us along on her personal journey with all its internal struggles, tribulations, and tumult. At the same time, she captures the remarkable bond that exists between mushers and their dogs. Bravo for turning out what may be the quintessential Iditarod story, and for crafting what is simply a great Alaskan adventure well told."
—Dave Atcheson, author of Dead Reckoning and Hidden Alaska
"Fast into the Night isnt just the title of a great book. Its a description of how I read this gripping and honest story of a womans passion to run the Iditarod while putting her dogs health and happiness first. I have only one complaint: Moderow owes me a nights sleep, because I couldnt put this book down."
—Patricia B. McConnell, author of The Education of Will and The Other End of the Leash
"I expected high adventure from Debbie Clarke Moderows story of running the Iditarodand happily, I found it. Moderow beautifully captures the personality of each dog as she struggles to earn the teams trust, and she reveals her vulnerabilities as she learns to trust
herself. This is an extraordinary account of a familys faith in one anotherfour-leggeds and two-leggeds alike."
—Sherry Simpson, author of The Way Winter Comes and Dominion of Bears
