Alaskan Authors Brings True Story of Family Mushing to Life in New Book and Embark Upon Book Tour

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - July 1, 2014 - PRLog -- (WILLOW, AK) –Willow, Alaska’s Team Ineka mushers Robert and Michelle Forto bring the history of Team Ineka to life in their children’s book titled Team Ineka: A Musher’s Dream. Accompanied by wonderful illustrations created by artist Barbara K. Slocum, and published by ArcticHouse Publishing in New York, this book has been named a 2014 “Best in Print” by American Pet Magazine.

The Fortos, along with their musher daughter, 16-year-old Nicole who completed the Junior Iditarod in February, have embarked upon an educational book tour visiting schools with one of their Team Ineka Husky sled dogs to read their book and talk all about mushing, training, responsibility, teamwork, and care of sled dogs.

If you would like to host the Fortos at your school or event for this wonderful educational treat and give students a unique opportunity to not only meet an official Team Ineka musher and have them read this great story to the children, but also be able to meet and pet one of their sled dogs as well, please contact the Fortos via phone at 907-841-1686 or by Email at leaddog@teamineka.com. Books will also be available for purchase at a discounted price of $10 each, and can be personalized during the visit.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully coming to your school!
