New Joe Redington Sr. Book Released

12/3/11 | Katie Mangelsdorf | Raven Point Projects | katiem@mtaonline.net

Champion of Alaskan Huskies - Joe Redington Sr., Father of the Iditarod

Joe Redington Sr. was an ordinary man with not so ordinary dreams and buckets of determination. His vision was as vast as the majestic Alaska landscape he loved to explore. This firsthand account is of the man whose love for the Alaskan husky and the Iditarod Trail evolved into the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Joe’s adventurous spirit, fierce perseverance, and creative heart burned strong within his character and enabled the impossible to become a reality. His spell-binding stories and genuine love of Alaska drew people into his dreams. This is the story of those unique feats that defined Joe’s life, and built the foundation for the most famous sled dog race in the world.

Lance Mackey, Iditarod Champion from 2007-2010, said, “As a young boy growing up around dogs, Joe Sr. was a part of my life. Reading Champion of Alaskan Huskies was like reliving a part of my upbringing. Joe would be pleased with his story being told.”

Rick Swenson, Iditarod Champion 1977, 1979, 1981-2, 1991, said, “Champion of Alaskan Huskies is an enjoyable insight into the lives of inspirational homesteaders and adventurers, Joe and Vi Redington, that brings their legendary can do spirit into the hearts of readers of all ages.”

Ray Redington Jr. and Ryan Redington, Joe’s grandsons, who run in the Iditarod, said, “Grandpa made a lot of people famous and it’s pretty cool that he kept the sport of mushing alive by starting the Iditarod. We’re proud to follow in his footsteps and hope when we’re eighty, we’re able to run the race as well as he did.”

The book is available through the SDC Bookstore
