After learning the language of the wolves and slowly earning their trust, Julie becomes a member of the pack. Recommended for ages 9 and up. Winner of the 1973 Newbery Medal.

Editorial Reviews

“The whole book has a rare, intense reality which the artist enhances beautifully with animated drawings.”
“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.”
“The evocatively written, empathetic story effectively evokes the nature of wolves and dramatizes how the traditional Eskimo way of life is giving way before the relentless onlaught of civilization.”
“It is a book anyone who loves the outdoors will find hard to forget.”
“[Jean Craighead George’s] novel is packed with expert wolf lore, its narrative beautifully conveying the sweeping vastness of tundra as well as many other aspects of the Arctic, ancient and modern, animal and human. It is refreshing to see the Arctic well portrayed through a woman’s eyes.”
