Powerful and beautifully filmed

This documentary inspired me and touched me deeply. About the only thing I have in common with Iditarod racers is that I love dogs.

This is NOT about snow dogs. It's about a true Alaskan sport.

This is a wonderful movie about an amazing man. Lance Mackey has lived a very tough life & has endured to become a champion dog musher. He gives all the credit to his dogs. A true musher. Loved this movie. The scenery is spectacular.
