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.

julie of the wolves was one of my favorite books growing up. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I rented it from the library and loved it so much that I bought it! Since then, I have revisted the North Slope of Alaska many times. I love this book and I am excited to share it with someone.
