About The Book | 

 A new, unforgettable adventure memoir, by Katherine Keith, in the tradition of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild and John Krakauer’s Into the Wild. Epic Solitude is the powerful and touching story of how one woman found her way—both despite
and because of the difficulties of living and racing in the remote wilderness.  All her life, Katherine Keith has hungered for remote, wild places.  Her travels take her across America, but it is in the vast and rugged landscape of Alaska that she finds her true home. She and her husband build a log cabin, miles away from the nearest road, and create a life of love. An idyllic existence, but with isolation and brutal living conditions can also come heartbreak. Keith experiences tragic loss and must push on, with her infant daughter, alone in the Alaskan backcountry.  Long-distance dog sledding opens a door to a new existence.  Racing across the state of Alaska offers the best of all worlds by combining raw wilderness with solitude and athleticism. The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race remains a true test of character and offers the opportunity to intimately explore the frontier that she has come to love. With every thousand miles of winter trail traversed in total solitude, she confronts challenges that awaken internal demons, summoning all the inner grief and rage that lies dormant.
