I like the book and I recommend it to my friends to read. I learned that someone can live alone in wilderness. Russel had to kill animals for his food and he had a lamp that Oogruk gave him to warm the meat up. He had to kill for him and the dog team that Oogruk also g...

Newbery Learn about different culture in this book. A boy name Russell learns from Oogruk, his father friend, on how to hunt caribou, seal, and birds. He also learns that there are songs for everything. One other thing that Russell has to work on is to trust with the team of dogs. The dogs have a special instinct that tells Russell where he should go in order to discover the northern land. If you want to see what will happen next, you have to read. I encourage to all readers to read this amazing book so that you know that there are another life. Gary Paulsen was born in 1939 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 1966, his first book was published, The Special War. Paulsen lives in La Luz, New Mexico with his wife, Ruth, an artist. Bibliography Paulsen, Gary. Dogsong. New York: Aladdin Paperbacks, 1985.

    Dog Song No Song

    Gary Paulsen writes another adventure story about an eskimo boy out on self discovery. I personally did not enjoy this novel. I found it boring and not catchy. It's certainly the type of story that will not grab you. It needed more action I think. I would only recomend this to true fans of this author.
