I first read about the diphtheria outbreak and the race to get the meds to the ill when I was about 12-13 in a book called Silver Chief, dog of the north. I think it was written by Jack London. His story was based on the original race. It had been in my grandparents bookcase. I enjoyed following the Iditarod when it was first run a few years later.Thank you for the info, updates and memories :)
You're welcome, Suz. :)
I think that is where I read it, too. I read all Jack London's books when I was growing up.Hope you all have a blessed, safe weekend, Reverend.
Thank you, Linda.
Thanks Reverend. That was a splendid introduction. Makes the achievement even more impressive.
I'm glad it helped put things in perspective, TB. I hoped it would.
