3 book reviews in the new Ski Trax magazine…

He’s still ridiculously slow to pay his contributors, but it appears that Ski Trax publisher Benj Sadovoy out of Toronto has turned a corner with Ski Trax, one of only two Nordic-oriented magazines in North America (you won’t find Trax or Cross Country Skier at your local 7-11; indeed, even specialty magazine stores don’t always carry it). The current “Holiday” issue (mine arrived yesterday, maybe Ben is thinking about Chinese New Year) contains my regular ‘Backcountry’ column that contains reviews of three ski-related books – Leslie Anthony’s White Planet, Chris Davenport and Penn Newhard’s Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America, and Topher Donohue’s Bugaboo Dreams. I originally wrote the column thinking that these books would make great Christmas gifts, and that’s the case. You might just have to buy them NEXT Christmas, is all. In the meantime, if you’re ‘nuts for Nordic,’ as they say, find a copy of Ski Trax or tour their incredibly news-packed website. The blogroll of athlete diaries is well worth checking out. Since this is the internet and everything is free, just click on the scan, below, and ‘magnify’ to read the reviews.
