“Jim Bryde, sled dog racer, always had the ambition to place first in the pinnacle of Britain’s sled dog racing, the competition Aviemore’. This is the story of his life shared with Siberian Huskies; the trouble, love and tragedy that can come with a passion for racing and indeed for the dogs themselves. Jim’s beloved dogs include the loveable Joker, stubborn Dansa, the placid and friendly Bandit, but could it be Gun, son of Fly and Maji, and Gun’s subsequent bloodline, who can finally lead Jim’s team to victory, after many years of placing second? While Jim’s personal life sometimes overlaps into the world of racing, the passion for his hobby can be felt in every word of this endearing account of sled dog racing. To those interested in owning Siberian Huskies and racing sled dogs, his own individual accounts of his experiences are full of valuable tips.”
