For four years Teresa Angell travelled around New Zealand interviewing breeders and mushers while photographing the growing sport of dryland/sled dog racing.
Teresa’s research and photographs cover the sport’s raw, typical Kiwi DYI beginnings and the importing of the very first Siberian Huskies. Over the years this has led to what is today a rapidly growing and complex sport involving a wide range of dog breeds and an active, hospitable and friendly community which is passionate about it’s dogs.
The outstanding features of the book are Teresa’s stunning photographs, which pay a glowing tribute to the dogs and their owners. Her pictures capture the thrills, the drama – and the hard work – of this compelling and exciting sport.
