Sled Dogs: An Alaskan Epic


Episode Info

Following mushers and their mutts (Alaskan huskies really are mutts) during the 1999 Iditarod race, an 1100-mile endurance run from Anchorage to Nome. It is, says narrator Peter Coyote, "the ultimate test of our oldest partnership." Among the mushers: Jerome Longo, a former White House chef who "left everything to pursue a relationship with these dogs"; construction worker Sonny Lindner, with an all-yearling team; and Lynda Pletttner, who's counting on 10-year-old lead dog Argy to pull her through.
