Susan Butcher Biography
Loved Animals, Hated The City, Began Preparing For The Iditarod, A Dangerous Run-in With A MooseCONTACT INFORMATION
Sled-dog racer Susan Butcher's aversion to civilization and love of dogs drew her from Boston to Alaska when she was twenty years old. The former city girl embraced the Alaskan wilderness, and tested herself against it, as she learned the art of mushing, or driving a sled led by a team of three to twenty dogs. She became one of only two people to win the Iditarod Trail Dog Sled Race four times, and was the first to win three in a row.
