Book Description

Sept. 4 2003 Julie of the Wolves

To her small Eskimo village, she is known as Miyax; to her friend in San Francisco, she is Julie. When her life in the village becomes dangerous, Miyax runs away, only to find herself lost in the Alaskan wilderness.

Without food and time running out, Miyax tries to survive by copying the ways of a pack of wolves. Accepted by their leader and befriended by a feisty pup named Kapu, she soon grows to love her new wolf family. Life in the wilderness is a struggle, but when she finds her way back to civilization, Miyax is torn between her old a new lives. Is she Miyax of the Eskimos -- or Julie of the wolves?

Product Description

From Amazon

Miyax, like many adolescents, is torn. But unlike most, her choices may determine whether she lives or dies. At 13, an orphan, and unhappily married, Miyax runs away from her husband's parents' home, hoping to reach San Francisco and her pen pal. But she becomes lost in the vast Alaskan tundra, with no food, no shelter, and no idea which is the way to safety. Now, more than ever, she must look hard at who she really is. Is she Miyax, Eskimo girl of the old ways? Or is she Julie (her "gussak"-white people-name), the modernized teenager who must mock the traditional customs? And when a pack of wolves begins to accept her into their community, Miyax must learn to think like a wolf as well. If she trusts her Eskimo instincts, will she stand a chance of surviving? John Schoenherr's line drawings suggest rather than tell about the compelling experiences of a girl searching for answers in a bleak landscape that at first glance would seem to hold nothing. Fans of Jean Craighead George's stunning, Newberry Medal-winning coming-of-age story won't want to miss Julie (1994) and Julie's Wolf Pack (1998). (Ages 10 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sends the Wrong Message Jan. 9 2004
Format:Paperback
I found the ending of this book quite disturbing. For most of the novel, the author portrays the arctic environment in general and wolves specifically in a sensitive manner. However, in the final pages, Julie's father kills the hero wolf by shooting it from an airplane. The author concludes by essentially shrugging the whole thing off. Julie and her dad reunite, and what happened to the wolf (who had saved her life) is depicted as something that's too bad but cannot be helped. Further, it is suggested that this is the way things are going to be and that's that. A bad ending and a bad environmental message to send to young readers.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring story April 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I thought Julie of the Wolves was very bad. I loathed it. The reason why was because I hate survival stories because Julie doesn't have a brain. Because she talks to animals like they are human beings and they don't understand a word you are saying.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring story April 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Julie of the wolves was not a very good book at all I loathed it.The reason is beacuse I hate survival stories they are very boring and they only think about survival because they are bums and can't afford to live in the city like normal people do. And the dumbest thing I thought about the book was she talks to wolves like they are humans and they do not understand one word that you are saying and they wolves get annoning because they always howl and you can not sleep.

4.0 out of 5 stars Journey Though Alaska March 26 2004
By michael
Format:Paperback
This book was great. It's about a young 13-year-old Eskimo girl, called Miyax, who is married to a boy called Daniel and lives with his parents. Miyax then runs away from Daniel and his family, because of the way she was treated. She plans to work her way to San Francisco, where she would live with her pen pal, but she then finds herself lost in a large tundra and depends on wolves to live. By observing a pack she found how to communicate with the wolves and...
One of my reasons why I liked this book is, it's so descriptive. You can easily picture the characters and their surroundings just by reading a few sentences. Such as this quote, "Her face was pearl-round and her nose was flat. Her black eyes, which slanted gracefully, were moist and sparkling."
Another reason why I like this book is, it gives me an idea of how the environment of Alaska is, and how the old, traditional culture of the Eskimos was like. I also like how the book described the relationship between people, and the nature around them, and how they learned how to survive in the wilderness just by observing animals- how to hunt, where to find food, and how to defend yourself against another predator. This quote describes what I mean, "Next she noted that the grasses grew in different spota than the mosses, and the more she studied, the more the face of the tundra emerged; a face that could tell her which way was north, if she had listened more carefully to Kapugen."
My most favorite part of this book was when Miyax begins playing with the puppies of the pack, Zing, Zit, Sister, and Kapu. This reminds me of how enjoyable life can be with friends and family.
