Editorial Reviews

Deborah Zink Roffino
In this Newbery Honor book, 13-year-old Russel Susskit heeds the words of a wise Eskimo shaman and leaves his familir village to begin a journey of self-discovery. The thoughtful plot is laced with physically profound scenes, realistic and savage, as the young man learns to survive in the cold white reality of the wilderness.

A widely praised and reviewed book, Dogsong is the tale of Russel Susskit, an Eskimo teenage boy who makes a 1400 mile trek with the last remaining dog team in his village. Russel is drawn to the old ways and to the village shaman who helps him prepare for the trek on which he hopes to find his own song. It is an epic journey that will forever change Russel's life. A Newbery Honor Book.
