In this Newbery Medal–winning book, a young Eskimo girl must join a pack of wolves to survive When her mother dies and her father heads to war, thirteen-year-old Miyax is sent away to be married to a boy she barely knows. Unhappy in her new life, she flees from her home in Alaska, intending to find her way to San Francisco, where her pen pal, Amy (who knows Miyax as "Julie"), lives. The Alaskan tundra is vast and white, and Miyax soon becomes lost. When she comes across a wolf pack, she decides to make her camp nearby, hoping to befriend the wild animals. As she lives among the wolves, speaking to them in their own language, Miyax sees that the old Eskimo ways will help her to survive—but is survival enough? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jean Craighead George, including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
