Barry Makarewicz is a former winner of the Yellowstone Rendezvous, is a 15 time US Masters Champion, and has been on the Toko Tech Team since 2000. He is also a paramedic/fire fighter. He just released a captivating book which can be ordered on Amazon.com and other sources on the web. Here's a link to more information http://www.triumphtragedyandtedium.com/. The book is not about skiing, but saving lives and life as a paramedic. His personality as a cross country skier ("can do" attitude) comes through clearly.
