Group Description

Booted Victory

"In two months Scdoris will begin an adventure on the frozen tundra--the Alaskan bush variety. The high-school graduate, nineteen, will fulfill a lifelong dream by taking part in the 1,049-mile Iditarod Trail International Sled Dog Race, among the most grueling sporting events. And she will do so despite being blind. As much as her story inspires, as much attention as her two-year quest to enter the "Last Great Race" attracted, the essential chapter unfolds in the dusty dog yard."

"They'd raced from San Francisco to Glendale on New Year's Day, 1929, and Pancho--confident of victory since she'd secretly souped up the engine of her Travel Air--had pulled a doozy of a stunt. She'd borrowed a movie camera, one of those new little Kodak jobs, from her pal Erich Von Stroheim, the director. The race had begun. Pancho had flown to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, circled the field twice, and filmed the game. Then she'd flown on to Glendale, beating that windbag, Roscoe Turner, the Knight of the Sky, and his pet lion, Gilmore, he of the diamond studded collar, by a good three minutes."
