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."
