Book Review

Recently recommended by the Osterhout Teen Book Club is Julie and the Wolves by Jean Craighead George. It is an interesting story of a thirteen year old Eskimo girl, lost in the Alaskan tundra during a turbulent change in the way of Eskimo life-style. Trying to escape a poorly arranged marriage, Julie/Miyax flees into the wild in hope of getting to San Francisco. Julie/Miyax seeks help from a wolf pack in order to survive thus, becoming a member of the pack in the process. Julie/Miyax is forced to accept the changing Eskimo life-style from the encroaching modern world.
