Most sports become inspirational when extraordinary people excel at ordinary things. In ultra-endurance racing, ordinary people must excel at extraordinary things. "Ghost Trails" is the true story of an ordinary person - timid, nonathletic, raised in the suburbs of Salt Lake City - and her unlikely route to one of the most difficult bicycle races in the world, a 350-mile epic along Alaska's frozen Iditarod trail. Through her struggles and intimate confrontations with her fears and weaknesses, she discovers the surprising destination of her life's trails.

"Amazing Book" Best book I have read in years. I could not put this book down. Jill's stories will give you a new perspective on what hard is. "I crawled out from the bank and shook the snow from my face, trying to stop my head from spinning. What was going on? I shined my headlamp around to locate any obstacle I might have hit. The trail was flat and straight as it had been all evening. My tire tracks simply veered off to the side and into the snow. That could only mean one thing- I was falling asleep on my bike." Thanks for sharing your amazing stories. Seriously just buy the book, this is something you have to experience for yourself.
"GHOST TRAILS by Jill Homer" An excellant book. I read many non-fiction extreme travel books and I recommend this one. Jill is a good writer. Riding a bicycle in minus 60 wind chill may be a little crazy and she takes us there. A+++
