Sled Dogs of Denali National Park

Karen Fortier



Price: $8.00
Member price: $6.80
 

From entertaining visitors to taking rangers on backcountry winter patrols, Denalis hard-working dogs are as much a part of the park as its famous peak. Denali's sled dogs make it possible for rangers to assist park researchers, contact winter visitors, break trail, and patrol the park's boundaries while maintaining the integrity of the wilderness. Experience the life of a sled dog, read the fascinating history of Denali's dogs and the park's pioneering rangers who led them, head out on patrol with the team, and learn about the living history of dogs at the park today all here in this tribute to a cultural tradition that has remained unchanged since the founding of the park in 1917. Awarded second prize in the 2003 book category media awards from the National Association of Interpretation, this beautifully designed book offers readers an inside look at a unique part of Denali and Alaska history. Karen Fortier moved to Denali in 1992 and instantly fell in love with running sled dogs. She is now a park ranger and kennel manager at Denali National Park.
