Mary Shields, First Woman to Complete the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race

Mary Shields is the first woman to complete the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Ignoring shouts from some spectators that SHE would never make it, Mary mushed on finishing at a respectable 22nd out of 49 racers. Hear her tales of her life in Alaska. Join in on the laughter as you listen to “tails of the trail” and how she acquired her first dog team. Happy Trails and Happy Tales from Iditarod racer, author, adventurer and storyteller, Mary Shields.

A video of Kine Leines Skår may be seen on my YouTube Channel. She is an Iditarod Sled Dog Race trainer.
