When 13-year-old Julie Edwards Miyax Kapugen runs away from an arranged marriage at home, she becomes lost in the vast Alaskan tundra. Desperate to survive, she slowly befriends a pack of wolves, thus beginning a saga that is to continue over the course of several years, hundreds of miles, and three books. Following the gut-wrenching Newbery-winning classic Julie of the Wolves, Jean Craighead George created that rarest of beasts--the stellar sequel. Picking up where Julie of the Wolves left off, Julie follows the remarkable Eskimo girl's journey between two cultures: the traditional Eskimo way, living in harmony with nature, and the modern "Minnesota rules," relying on industry and cattle. It is only when Julie sets out to save her beloved wolf pack from her father that she learns how to reconcile the old ways with the new. With Julie's Wolf Pack, George continues the gripping Arctic adventures, now entirely from the wolves' perspective. Life on the Alaskan tundra is full of drama for the wolves: feast, famine, disease, puppies, challenges from rivals, and threat from humans. Without slipping into anthropomorphism, this book gives readers an extraordinary insight into the world of the wolf.
