In 2012, 2014 and 2016, Dennis and photographer Jane followed
this epic 1000-mile sled-dog race across frozen Alaska.

Using archive pictures, Dennis places the Iditarod in its Alaskan context.
Sled-dogs are an integral part of Alaska's history,
from the gold rush early last century through to the present day.
.

In the presentation we see some of Alaska's magnificent scenery and
meet wonderful people who live there.
.
Following the Iditarod was a life-changing experience.
Through this presentation, 
Dennis would like to share that experience with you.

The Iditarod is more than a race.
It celebrates the history and heritage of Alaska,
America's Last Frontier.
