Chasing Dogs - My Adventures As The Official Photographer of Alaska's Iditarod
Alaskan native Jeff Schultz offers a rare backcountry tour of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race through stunning photography.
Since 1982, Schultz has served as Iditarod's official photographer, traveling by plane, snowmachine, showshoes, and on foot to capture the race as no one else has. His stunning images and narrative of the amazing dogs, adventurous people, and magnificent landscapes will stay with you long after you close the book.
In Chasing Dogs, Schultz's stories and photos illuminate the joys and challenges of Iditarod for mushers, race administrators and judges, volunteers, villages, fans...and the dogs they all love.
Schultz shares his personal experiences as well, form traveling, eating, and sleeping along the trail, to engaging in below-zero experiments in photography. Digging out of the snow, crawling out of a plane crash, Schultz has encountered the same harsh trail conditions and weather hazards as the race participants, while artfully chronicling their journeys. It's all here, set amid the stunning beauty of Alaska's backcountry, dressed in white from start to finish.
For dog people, Chasing Dogs is a thousand miles of wonder without fear of frostbite.
