A family bond is much more than just a DNA match; it can be about having similar passions, talents, and interests. This is the case for the Stevenson family. Norm Stevenson has been racing dogs for many years and got into mushing from other members of his family.
“I got my own dogs in 1972, but was on a dogsled before that even,” said Norm Stevenson. “I got into dogsledding from my Uncle Jack and cousin Bob McPhail. They had dogs also.
