On the eve of one of mankind's toughest races, accompanied by thirteen of America's rarest dog breed, rookie musher Kyle Walker only has one thought in mind: win. Discovered in the lowlands of South Carolina, the Carolina grays have traveled over five thousand miles to face off in the 2003 Yukon Quest. But one dog stands above the rest—King.
When an unexpected storm strikes, Kyle Walker and the reigning champion are forced to turn back. Stranded at the checkpoint, Kyle and his dogs find solace in a young veterinarian with auburn hair and keen green eyes—Jenna Maynor.
In this storm another race is forming, one of an Inuit man racing to save his family. Presented with the choice to help, but at the risk of his and his dogs’ lives, Kyle Walker ventures into the unknown in search of a mom and two young daughters.
The Yukon Quest was founded on the premise that a dog driver and his team should be a self-sufficient unit capable of challenging varied terrain and severe weather. But these conditions may prove to be too much, even for Kyle and King.
(Note: Even though this is book 1 of the series, it can be interchanged with book 2 and vice versa)

This is the first book I have read by this author and if his other books include dogs – count me in.
The writing style of this author is definitely different. The vocabulary was much different than what I am used too. (Bigger words that I am not familiar with and a writing style that I personally felt did not flow easily in my mind, but did not detract from the book at all. It was just different and slowed me down a little bit in some areas.)
I was definitely drawn in immediately and found myself grinning ear to ear while reading.
There was this touch of romance throughout that gave the book an extra bit of love, but the journey and connection between Kyle and his dogs – my heart swells.
I have never read any dog sled books, but love my dog sled movies so it was such a neat experience for me to read this book.
I loved everything about it and have always dreamed of having a dog/human connection like Kyle had with his dogs! (That is seriously a dream come true!)
If you enjoy fiction; dog sledding; dogs; human connections with dogs – you will love Faith in Every Footstep. Even if you hate all of those things, you still will enjoy it in my opinion. Great book. Great story. I can’t wait to read more!
