The book is divided into three sections. The first section lays out the historical and organizational development of dog sledding in Norway, and analyses the phenomenon in the context of modernity. 

There is also a discussion of nature experiences as an element of dog sledding. The second section focuses on ethical issues, notably the work to safeguard and enhance the welfare of sled dogs in long-distance racing and tourism. 

The last section provides analyses of the physiological and psychological challenges of long-distance racing (dehydration, sleep deprivation etc), and of motivational factors in mushers.
