WELCOME TO THE GODDAMN ICE CUBE

“As a storyteller and a stylist, Braverman is remarkably skilled, with a keen sense of visceral detail that borders on sublime. Her ability to draw readers into heart-pounding action sequences is what makes the book so courageous and original as a travel narrative and a memoir of self-discovery.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“. . . a richly insightful work whose bold but delicately delivered honesty has much to teach us. . . . Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube is gorgeous, moving and universally resonant. Most of all, it’s important.”

DOGS ON THE TRAIL

“Truly gorgeous…. Guaranteed to please…. While strictly light-hearted, this chronicle is rich in facts about all aspects of mushing, sled dogs, racing, and terrain."
