The strength of Kapu's leadership will determine not just the well-being of the pack but its very survival.

Author Biography:

Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in a family of naturalists, Jean George has centered her life around writing and nature. She attended Pennsylvania State University, graduating with degrees in English and science. In the 1940s she was a member of the White House press corps and a reporter for the Washington Post. Ms. George, who has written over 90 books - among them My Side of the Mountain (Dutton), a 1960 Newbery Honor Book, and its sequels On the Far Side of the Mountain and Frightful's Mountain (both Dutton) - also hikes, canoes, and makes sourdough pancakes. In 1991, Ms. George became the first winner of the School Library Media Section of the New York Library Association's Knickerbocker Award for Juvenile Literature, which was presented to her for the "consistent superior quality" of her literaryworks.

Her inspiration for the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves evolved from two specific events during a summer she spent studying wolves and tundra at the Arctic Research Laboratory of Barrow, Alaska: "One was a small girl walking the vast ad lonesome tundra outside of Barrow; the other was a magnificent alpha male wolf, leader of a pack in Denali National Park ... They haunted me for a year or more, as did the words of one of the scientists at the lab: 'If there ever was any doubt in my mind that a man could live with the wolves, it is gone now. The wolves are truly gentlemen, highly social and affectionate.'"

The mother of three children, Jean George is a grandmother who has joyfully red to her grandchildren since they were born. Over the years Jean George has kept 173 pets, not including dogs and cats, in her home in Chappaqua, New York. "Most of these wild animals depart in autumn, when the sun changes their behavior and they feel the urge to migrate or go off alone. While they are with us, however, they become characters in my books, articles, and stories."

Continues the story of Julie and her wolves in which Kapu must protect his pack from famine and disease while uniting it under his new leadership.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Keeping the focus on the wolves introduced in her Newbery-winning Julie of the Wolves, George writes "with astounding intimacy" and "complete command" of the animal world, said PW in a starred review. Ages 10-up. (Mar.)
VOYA - Susan Dunn
A warning: this book is not very much like the first two in the Julie series. If readers are expecting a similar story, they will be disappointed. Julie is in this book, but as a minor character. This is more a study and narrative of the lives of the Avalik pack of wolves that saved her life and then adopted her and became her second family. Kapu, son of Amaroq and Silver, became the leader of the Avalik pack after his father's death. However, Kapu is young and inexperienced, and it normally takes many years-years he does not have-for a pack leader to develop. Kapu struggles to maintain his authority over his rival, Raw Bones, and to protect his pack from an outsider who carries the rabies virus. This book provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of arctic wolves. George obviously knows her stuff. Those readers who are patient enough to stick with the book will come away having gained a new knowledge of wolves and greater respect for the difficulties and small tragedies of the natural cycle of life. However, it will take a dedicated reader to start and finish a book that has so little human interaction or characters, especially fans who want to read more about Julie. VOYA Codes: 4Q 3P M J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses, Will appeal with pushing, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
Children's Literature - Rebecca Joseph
In Julie of the Wolves and its sequel Julie, George introduced readers to the fascinating life of Julie and her interaction with a pack of wolves on the Arctic tundra and in northern Alaska. In this fabulous continuation of the story, the story is no longer from Julie's perspective but rather from the wolves' point of view. Through the minds of the different members of the Julie's wolf pack, the story of their fight for survival unfurls. The young leader Kapu struggles to keep his position from internal opposition within the pack. The entire pack faces a strange illness along with a food shortage that endangers their lives along with the lives of their new pups. Following several years in the lives of these wolves is engaging reading. Julie, the protagonist in the other novels, appears as a strong human presence throughout the book, and helps the wolves whenever she can while going forward with her own plans for the future which may separate her from her beloved wolves.
Children's Literature - Donna Freedman
If your kids loved the Newbery-winning "Julie of the Wolves" and its sequel, "Julie," they'll no doubt love "Julie's Wolf Pack." You'll love it, too, if anthropomorphism is your bag. If not, not. The story is told almost entirely from the point of view of the wolves - an exciting, crowded tale that's a veritable soap opera of intrigue, romance and some literal backbiting. George manages to pull this off without a whiff of adorableness. Possibly it's because she has studied wolf behavior for 25 years, and obviously respects the animals' wilder tendencies as much as she does their more "human" traits of caring for the young, helping the sick and mating for life. Come to think of it, the wolves could teach some of us a thing or two.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8Drawing upon her knowledge of wolf behavior, Eskimo culture, and Alaska, George continues the story of Kapu, the splendid male pup Julie nursed back to life in Julie of the Wolves HarperCollins, 1972. This third adventure chronicles six years in the life of Kapu and his pack family. The animals are convincingly depicted with such respect and affection that readers will feel as though they too are in the wild rooting for the pack in times of famine, admiring Sweet Fur Amy whose unusual leadership abilities enable her to become an Alpha female, and feeling anger when Kapu is captured for research. The book is divided into three parts that suit the episodic plotting style; the strongest segment occurs in the middle when a lone female infected with rabies joins the pack, threatening the lives of its members. The writing is laden with natural descriptions and keen observations, some of which interrupt the story's flow, but this rich detail is also the book's strength. The perspective of the wolves is effectively maintained, but their encounters with hunters, veterinarians, and government researchers provide a framework for the different factions that must learn to coexist if this resilient yet fragile species is to survive. Those who have enjoyed Julie's story thus far will want to read this latest encounter in which she grows up, attends college, and comes full circle back to the tundra, this time to study her beloved wolves with her new husband, Peter Sugluk.Caroline Ward, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Completing the switch in narrative view begun in Julie (1994), the sequel to Julie of the Wolves (1972), George continues her tale of the Avalik River pack entirely from the standpoint of its members: Kapu, the young new alpha; his daughter and successor, Sweet Fur Amy; Ice Blink, a lone wolf who carries rabies—and Willow Pup Julie, who lives in town but puts in appearances to inspect new pups or perform rescues. George invests all of her characters equally with expressive language, customary patterns of behavior, distinct personalities, and rich emotional lives. The wolfpack culture is complex and thoroughly articulated; readers who follow Kapu through seasons fat and lean, births, deaths, and challenges (serious, but always bloodless) to his leadership will be as devastated as the pack is when he is trapped and removed for a scientific experiment. Working mostly offstage, Julie engineers his return, but he does not rejoin the pack. The rhythms of life on the tundra are slow ones, and the only deaths George describes explicitly are those of wolves who succumb to the contagion that Ice Blink brings; the result is a story that flows at an even, deliberate pace, without—save for the brief outbreak of rabies—much suspense or sense of danger.

The wolf's-eye view will draw new readers to the books, but fans of the first books, already well-versed in wolf society, may find many of the situations repetitive.

Read an Excerpt



The wolves of the Avalik River ran in and out among the musk oxen. Their ruffs rippled like banners. Ice crystals danced up from their feet. The pack swirled like a twist of wind-blown snow. Their yellow eyes flashed and dimmed in the coming and going of the ice mist. Like the snow, they made no sound.
The musk oxen stopped and stared at the enemy. Then they lowered their shaggy heads and pawed down to the new grass growing under the snow. Their breath rose in steamy clouds and froze on their brows.
Kapu, the young leader of the wolf pack, reared on his hind legs, leaped to point the way, and led his clan to a turquoise-blue rise on the treeless Arctic tundra.
He carried himself proudly, with his chest forward and his head high. His black fur was brushed to a shine by the wind. His body was strongly muscled. He was the leader of the wolf pack that had saved the life of the young Eskimo girl, Miyax--whose English name was Julie Edwards--when she was lost on the Arctic tundra. She, in turn, had saved them by leading them to a new food source during the great caribou famine. The Yupik and Inupiat Eskimos of Kangik called them "Julie's wolf pack."
Kapu was keenly aware of Julie. She was not far away. He whisked his tail. She had read his message to the oxen, for she was no longer afraid that he would kill one. The villagers collected the wool from these sturdy animals to weave into light, warm clothing, and they zealously protected them.
"We are not hunting you," Kapu had said to the oxen with his body movements. "We chase you for the joy of it. We are wolves of the caribou."
Kapu and his followers were having fun. The shaggy herd deciphered this and returned totheir grazing. Julie deciphered it and told her father,
Kapugen. He chuckled and slipped his arm around her shoulders. The two walked quietly home.
Kapu wagged his tail. Chasing the oxen was a fine wolf joke. His rime-gray mate, Aaka, playfully spanked the ground with her forepaws, her rear end in the air. Zing--the beta, or second in command--enjoyed the joke even more than Kapu. His breathing came faster, and the pupils of his eyes enlarged ever so slightly. He smiled by lifting his lips from his glistening teeth. Pearly-white Silver, Kapu's mother, and her ill-tempered new mate, Raw Bones, also smiled. But Amy, Kapu's night-black daughter, did not get the joke. She was not old enough to know that her pack preferred caribou to musk oxen. Nor did she know that some packs harvest only deer and ignore moose, or harvest moose and caribou and ignore deer. Others take elk; a few take musk oxen. When the Avalik River Pack had a choice, they were wolves of the caribou. Wolves have their cultures.
The adolescent Amy studied the curled horns and bony brows of the musk oxen, then looked at her regal father. If he thought the chase was fun, then she did, too. She wagged her tail.
Amy could not possibly know that her pack were caribou wolves. She had been born in a caribou famine. These big Arctic deer had failed to come to Avalik territory for many years. The pack had taken what food they could find--a musk ox killed by a grizzly bear, rabbits, lemmings. Late in the fall they were able to add an occasional moose to their diet, but by March of her first year Amy's pack was starving again. The moose were gone. The wolves grew thin. They tired easily. When the breeding season arrived that month, her parents did not mate. Aaka, her mother, was undernourished. There had not been enough food for her to develop healthy puppies.
The rangy, self-important Raw Bones knew well that the pack had not had enough to eat for years. Nevertheless, he approached Silver to start their family. Kapu rushed to him. Hair rising on his back, ears erect and pointed forward, Kapu talked to him in the wolf language of posturing. Then he lifted his head above him and rumbled a dark authoritative growl that said plainly, "No pups." It is inherent in the leader of the wolf pack that he uses his judgment and makes such a decision. Raw Bones ignored him. He stepped closer to Silver.
Kapu bared his teeth and drew the corners of his mouth forward. His forehead wrinkled.
Raw Bones challenged this reprimand with a jaw snap. Kapu grabbed the back of his neck but did not clamp down with his bone-crushing jaws. He did not need to. He was saying, "I am the leader. No pups." Raw Bones drew his ears back and close to his head. He pulled his tail between his legs and lowered his body. This posture said, "You are the leader. I submit to you."
Obediently Raw Bones slunk off to the edge of the pack in the manner of a chastised wolf citizen. But he did not mean it.
He glanced back to see if Kapu was looking at him. If not, he would sneak-attack him. Kapu was looking. He displayed one canine tooth. It shone lethal white against the black of his lips. "Don't dare," it said. Raw Bones lay down. Rumbling sounds of peevishness rolled in his chest. He did not like being dominated, especially by a younger male.
Kapu did not completely relax. Raw Bones was his rival. He wanted to be leader of the Avaliks, Kapu's pack. He had been alpha male wolf of the Upper Colville River Pack for many years. Then the famine struck. One by one the members of his pack starved to death until he was the only one left alive. When his new mate, Silver, joined him, they survived on rabbits and other small mammals and waited for the famine to end and the feasting to begin.

Reading Group Guide

Introduction:

Julie's Wolf Pack is the exciting third volume in Jean Craighead George's epic about Julie and her arctic wolf pack, told this time from the point of view of the wolves themselves. Julie's Wolf Pack resumes the exciting tales of arctic adventure that began with the Newbery Medal– winning Julie of the Wolves and continued with Julie. In this captivating sequel, Julie has successfully saved her wolves from the Arctic hunters and returned home to her family. Meanwhile, on the tundra, the lives of the wolves are once again threatened. This time, Julie's beloved wolves face disease and famine. Kapu, the young, inexperienced leader of the pack, must find a way to protect the wolves while defending his leadership position from rival wolves who are waiting to ambush him and take over the pack. The survival of Julie's wolves depends upon Kapu's strength and his ability to maintain his leadership post and unite his pack.

Questions For Discussion:

  1. How are responsibilities divided among wolves in the pack? Discuss the various roles each wolf plays to maintain survival in the unrelenting arctic tundra. How do these roles help to prove that wolves are social animals similar to humans?
  2. Why does Julie refuse to return Nutik to Sweet Fur Amy (page 99)? What disadvantages does Uqaq suffer from being raised for so long by humans? Why do you think Uqaq refuses milk to her own pups?
  3. How do wolves communicate? Why is it so important for wolf packs to maintain strict watch over their territorial borders?
  4. What are Kapu's responsibilities as a leader? How does he prove his leadership qualities throughout thebook and demonstrate himself a far better leader than Raw Bones? Do you consider Raw Bones to be a strong wolf or simply a bully? Discuss the reasons for your opinion.
  5. Peter and Julie discuss the fact that wolves are often very effective at preventing the spread of rabies, sometimes even without inoculations. How is Kapu able to stave off the threat of rabies in his own pack?
  6. How does Sweet Fur Amy take control of the pack to become the new Alpha? Do you feel she is a strong leader? How does her leadership style differ from Kapu's?
  7. Peter Sugluk, Julie's fiancée, and Steven Itta discuss modern changes in Eskimo life. Steven states: "The Arctic has gotten very complicated, all right.We cannot live as our ancestors did even if we want to" (page 78). Do you feel this is an accurate statement about Eskimo life based on evidence from the book? Identify some of the Eskimo traditions that the author presents. Why are Julie and Peter unable to marry as soon as they wish? When they do finally wed, what do they do to instill their marriage with a sense of tradition?
  8. When you read that Kapu was going to be returned to the wolf pack, how did you think the wolves would react to him? Did you predict that Jean Craighead George would end the story with Kapu and Aaka's reunion and subsequent retreat to the mountains? Do you think the pair will ever return to the pack or will continue living separately? Explain.
  9. How do the wolves train their pups to survive and learn their roles in the pack and the tundra environment? Why must the pack challenge its pups to learn hunting and survival skills quickly even if the pups are exposed to dangerous threats?
  10. How does reading Julie's Wolf Pack from the unique perspective of the wolves have an impact on the story? How would the story be different if Julie was the narrator? Discuss how the stories of the wolves and Julie interweave and relate to each other.

    amazing book

    I received this book on a whim when I was nine and had no idea what I was getting into. It turned into an amazing story. I grew-up with a great love of wolves and they still remain my favorite animal even now that I'm 18. The author did an amazing job at describing the lives of this pack. I went back and read the first two books after this one because I had no idea who Julie was. Overall though, this book was amazing and I would definitely recommend it to any wolf lover.

    This last book in the Julie of the Wolves trilogy was truly the insparation for me to start writing. George has given amazing insight into the world of arctic wolves. I had long thought about writing my own book, but this one truly made my decision to craft my own story of Arctic life.

    Unbelieveable

    This book ws great! I've read it five times. What happened to Ice Blink was sad. She was such a nice wolf. It was too bad a lot of the wolves and pups died. I think what Dr.Hardy did was mean. He had no right to take Kapu fom the wild and test him like a lab rat. He was torturing him and Kapu couldn't do anything about it. I'm happy it didn't destroy the pack with great idea. It's great that Raw Bones is gone, Sweet Fur Amy finally has her pups and Kapu's back! I can't wait until the next book comes out. I wonder what the pups will be named and what will happen between Storm Call and Sweeet Fur Amy and Kapu and Aaka want to be alpha male and female.

    A Fifth Grader's Review of Julie's Wolf Pack

    Miyax(Julie) an Eskimo girl, is back, this time, in Julie's Wolf Pack! Kapu, the wolf, and his pack are bigger now. Humans, like Miyax, are trying to vaccinate the wolves from rabies, but some just run away. Uh-oh. The rabies are spreading to other wolves. They become stragglers and are taken in by unaware packs. That is a really easy way to spread rabies, all those wolves in a pack. How will Willow Pup Julie's(Julie's nickname from the wolves when she was helped by them) favorite wolf pack survive? And more importantly, will they survive the epidemic of rabies? I enjoyed reading Julie's Wolf Pack because it portrays wolves acting as they normally would act, and not as predators that bite everything that moves. And eat the prey. Like Julie of the Wolves, its predecessor, the same pack is the pack Julie is going to try to save. Kapu's father, Amaroq, was killed by humans. I like how the human beings' true natures are not covered up, but exposed by Jean Craighead George. I like her descriptive way of writing. In this book, her(Miyax) feelings are shown clearly. It is shown like in Julie of the Wolves. My favorite parts are the wolves' names. They are like Native American names. I like the wolves' names because they are very descriptive about them. Examples are Cloud Berry and Sweet Fur Amy. I recommend this book for people who like animals and like reading about their behavior and how they feel. Jean Craighead George has also written some other books. Examples are Julie of the Wolves, as I already mentioned, and The Talking Earth. Her books are always interesting. If you really like nature, read her books! :-)

    A Great Book!!!!!

    After reading the first book, 'Julie Of The Wolves', and Finding out about the other two I had to keep reading them. After reading the second book, 'Julie', I read the third book in the Series and fell in love again. Ever since then I hasve been reading and re-reading the books as the enjoyment never seemed to cease.

    Best Book in the Julie Trilogy!!!

    I found Julie's Wolf Pack the best out of the three. Although it is sad, it is exciting and adventurous at the same time. I especially liked how there was a section that was somewhat like a family tree. I widely recommend this book to all adventure/survival readers!

    Great story about the lives of wolf packs!!

    Julie's Wolf Pack is the first story I have ever read about the culture and lives a wolf pack. This book was a little hard to get into. There are alot of main characters at he begining of the book and it is a little confusing, but once a reader grasps what is going on and who each character is the book is hard to put down. George does a great job portraying the wolf's culture and rules. The reader is able to relate the way of the wolf's life and make connections back to human nature. Julie's Wolf Pack has all the elements of a great read. This book has character develpment, plot, setting and creates suspense right up until the very end of the book. This book did not end the way I had expected. After following the whole life of the wolf and sharing the wolf's experiances through reading I had built up a ending in my mind, and this did not happen. I was not at all dissapointed with this book,or the way it ended. If the reader wants to read a great book and learn a good deal about the wolfpack culture, this is the book for you.

    I loved it!!!!!!!!

    I loved it so much!!!! Even though my name is Julie, I loved the book about the wolves. It was very confusing in the beginning but it got more interesting and exciting. I wondered why did Kapu and Aaka's pups pass away. But in the book and in real life it was the way of survival. I really loved it and read it every second when I had the chance.

    I loved the first book, and plan to buy the next two, but I would like to speak my anger in the fact that one of the reviewing people gave away a very big spoiler, that ruined the book for me. Thanks alot.

    Kapu trilogy

    I loved this book! I liked Storm Call, Sweet Fur Amy, and Wind Voice the best. I have no idea why Jean Craighead George had five of Kapu and Aaka's pups die. That made no sense in the least bit. Why couldn't they all live? I loved the ending though!
