Product Description

No End In Sight is the first-person story of a young sled dog racer who had to overcome an incredible obstacle to compete—born legally blind, Rachael grew up amid the taunts of classmates who made fun of her until her innate athletic talent gave her an arena in which to shine. 
 
Rachael was the youngest athlete ever to compete in a 500-mile sled dog race, but her dream goal was to participate in the sport’s top competition: the Iditarod Trail International Sled Dog Race across the wilderness of Alaska.  She faced stiff opposition from the organizers of the race because of her disability, but she never gave up—and finally was allowed to compete with the help of a visual interpreter.  
 No End In Sight is a story of athleticism and the grace that comes from working with animals.  It is also a stirring memoir about how an unwavering inner compass can propel anyone to achieve even seemingly insurmountable goals.
