Library speaker will recount his dog-sledding Alaskan saga
At 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, in the lower level of the public library, Wisconsin native Jim Ryder will speak about his incredible journey to Nome, Alaska.
In early 2011 Ryder traveled solo, by dog team, 800 miles from Nenana to Nome. His trip replicated the original Serum Run, which follows part of the Iditarod Trail.
The Serum run goes along the same route that was taken by a sled-dog relay that carried the diphtheria antitoxin to Nome in 1925.
