Details

In a place where respect is not easily earned, the name of this homesteader, pilot, and visionary dog musher generates awe. His is the classic image of an Alaska pioneer - rugged, independent, determined, hard-working. Meet Jo Redington, Father of the Iditarod, a man who found his destiny in Alaska.

In an inspirational biography, Lew Freedman chronicles Redington's birth on the Chisholm Trail and his boyhood in teh Depression - homeless, motherless, roaming the country looking for work as a field hand. Alaska was his rebirth in 1948. Redington found the home he never had. On his own piece of dirt, a man could raise a family, hunt, fish, run dogs and stand up for what he believed.
