Dear Librarians,

Newton Marshal, an impoverished, illiterate Jamaican is the first black man in history to complete the international 1000-mile Yukon Quest, "the world's toughest race" and Alaska's Iditarod, "the last great race." The story of him accomplishing that unlikely achievement is about visionaries — a Jamaican businessman, a world-famous musician from Florida, a Scottish dog musher, a special needs teacher from Michigan and Newton himself — who believe in challenging boundaries and stereotypes to overcome adversity and impact society.
