Iditarod Musher, Karen Land, @ PCPL
The Putnam County Public Library announces the visit of Iditarod Musher, writer, and native Hoosier Karen Land with her dog, Borage on Tuesday March 19th at 6:30 pm. Karen and Borage have received rave reviews across the country for their presentations in which Karen shares her enthusiasm for dogs, life, the wilderness, and challenge.
Karen describes the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race across Alaska: “Imagine stepping on the runners with 16 dogs barking and pounding to RUN in front of you. Imagine taking that team from the crowded downtown streets of Anchorage across the treacherous Alaskan Range Mountains down the bitterly cold Yukon River to the Bering Sea and the gold rush town of Nome. Imagine running a dog team 1,150 miles; the same distance as a trip from Indianapolis, Ind. to Miami, Florida. Imagine racing day and night for 14 days straight to reach the finish and your goal.”
“My dogs have taught me about leadership and teamwork. As they say, ‘You can’t push a noodle.’ Mushing takes leaders willing to set the pace and guide the way, and a team full of desire willing to follow. .”
