Julie of Wolves
To her small Eskimo village, she is known as Miyax; to her friend in San Fransisco, she is Julie. When her life in the village becomes too dangerous, Miyax runs away, only to find herself lost in Alaskan wilderness. With 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 fiesty 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 and new lives. Is she Miyax of the Eskimos or Julie of the wolves.
This story is in 3 parts revolving all around the main character Miyax. After running away from a terrible life she is confronted with surviving in the Alaskan wilderness. She meets a pack of wild wolves and has to live and learn to thrive with the wolves.
Sometimes confronting, you could really picture the attitudes and personality of every character. The author got the idea and message threw quite well, and you could understand the perspective. Miyax is a very enjoyable character and is a wonderful role- model.
