Julie of the Wolves. Jean Craighead George. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1994. 226 pages.

The book Julie of the Wolves, written by Jean Craighead George, is about a girl who is returning home to her father in Alaska but gets hopelessly lost in the tundra wilderness; her life is saved by a remarkable animal. When she does return home, many things have changed; she tries to adapt to these changes. Julie of the Wolves is a really great story, in my opinion; young children and some young adults would really enjoy it.

The story begins around late fall or early winter in an Eskimo village on the bank of the frozen Avalik River in Alaska. It is reported that this story idea resulted from a research trip that George took to Barrow, Alaska. Her love of nature is obvious through her description.

In the story Julie of the Wolves, Julie is the main character. In the beginning of the story she returns home to a lot of change. Traditional ways are slowly disappearing; Eskimo values are being challenged. The book quotes: "She did not want to be known for her beauty, but for her wisdom and fortitude, Eskimo virtues."

Jean Craighead George is a wonderful writer; the words in her book are so vivid. The entire time I was reading Julie of the Wolves, I could envision everything; it was like watching or creating a movie, only so much better. George is very descriptive- the way she details everything like the weather, land, seasons, and characters is so incredible that you could picture everything she wrote. Though I had some trouble pronouncing the names of characters, the book is still great. I would highly recommend this book to adolescents.

This book is about a young girl, named Julie, around the age of fourteen that had left home to go to school and get married. After getting out of a dreadful relationship with her husband she goes and lives with the wolves. Then she finally decides to go home to her father. But soon she finds that her wolf friends are in danger.
I thought this book was a very adventurous and compelling; because of the relationship between this young woman and her father and his new American wife, and how Julie has to protect her wolf friends from her father. She has to try and figure a way to keep both relationships going.
