Faith in Every Footstep by Wesley Banks

On the eve of one of mankind's toughest races, accompanied by thirteen of America's rarest dog breed, rookie musher Kyle Walker only has one thought in mind: win. Discovered in the lowlands of South Carolina, the Carolina grays have traveled over five thousand miles to face off in the 2003 Yukon Quest. But one dog stands above the rest—King.

When an unexpected storm strikes, Kyle Walker and the reigning champion are forced to turn back. Stranded at the checkpoint, Kyle and his dogs find solace in a young veterinarian with auburn hair and keen green eyes—Jenna Maynor.

In this storm another race is forming, one of an Inuit man racing to save his family. Presented with the choice to help, but at the risk of his and his dogs’ lives, Kyle Walker ventures into the unknown in search of a mom and two young daughters.

The Yukon Quest was founded on the premise that a dog driver and his team should be a self-sufficient unit capable of challenging varied terrain and severe weather. But these conditions may prove to be too much, even for Kyle and King.


Wesley Banks was born in 1983 and grew up on the west coast of Florida. He graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Civil Engineering. After spending over 7 years building movable bridges from Florida to Washington he decided to focus on his true passion: writing.

Wesley recently moved from Florida to Oregon to get back to the great outdoors that he's love so much. He lives with his wife Lindsey, and his two dogs Linkin and Story. Most of his time these days is spent writing, with as much rock climbing, hiking, or skiing as they can fit in.

My Review

Faith in Every Footstep pulled me in from the first pages o the book. I felt fear for Kyle Walker. This book is a page turner you will probably not want to put it down once you start. It will keep you in suspense and wanting to know whats next. 
Kyle Walker has gone over 5000 miles for this race. Not only is the cold  a dangerous thing or him and his dogs but what about wild life like coyotes. His dogs are a special breed called Carolina Grays. He has trained them to be self sufficient and capable of handling the terrain. They come across a big challenge should they help find a mother and her daughters out there in unknown terrain for him. Great book.  What a awesome story. Like to see it in a movie.    Great writer! Look forward to what Wesley writes next.
