A Caribou Journeyby Debbie S. Miller
Life in the frozen tundra of Alaska is hard and cold for the hearty caribou. With their thick coats and their padded, shovel-like hooves, caribou are ideally adapted to the snow and the dangers that await them.
"Miller provides information in the text that goes well beyond the picturesque. . .The oil paintings provide background vistas that will give the book appeal for very young nature enthusiasts."—Booklist
"The focus is on the experiences of a mother and her yearling and newborn, as caribou activities are described. Dramatic depictions of their search for food, escapes from attacking eagles and tormenting mosquitoes, and the perils of migrating bring an immediacy to the description of their daily lives. The vividly presented information is enhanced by acrylic paintings."—The Horn Book, Inc.
