This is one of my all time favorite books. As a young teen, I must have read it 20 times. Great adventure in a foreign (to most people) land, and although not a happy ending, a wonderful book nonetheless.

There are lots of good books out there for kids, but few great ones. I consider a book great, if it has a fascinating premise, an interesting plot, well-drawn characters, but also a strong protagonist with a difficult problem for my children to identify with. A book is outstanding if it can also give them a look into a different culture and way of life. Julie of the Wolves, in my opinion, is outstanding children's literature.

Jean George has captured the subtle nuances of Eskimo life, animal habits, the pain of growing up, and combines these elements into a thrilling adventure which is, at the same time, a poignant love story."

Great story!!! I loved it!

To her small Eskimo village, she is know as Miyax; to her friend in San Francisco, she is Julie. When the village is no longer safe for her, Miyax runs away. But she soon finds herself lost in the Alaskan wilderness, without food, without even a compass to guide her.

Slowly she is accepted by a pack of Arctic wolves, and she grows to love them as though they were her family. With their help, and drawing on her father's teachings, Miyax struggles day by day to survive. But the time comes when she must leave the wilderness and choose between the old ways and the new. Which will she choose? For she is Miyax of the Eskimos, but Julie of the Wolves.
