Miyax, a 13-year-old Eskimo girl is lost on the Alaskan tundra. It is a harsh place where food is scarce and many people struggle to survive.  She comes across a pack of wolves, who accept her as one of them.

Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George

The wolves feed and protect Miyax and they become her best friends. She becomes attached to one little pup, who stays by her side always.

After a while, she realizes that the pack is getting ready to migrate and she knows she will never be able to keep up with them. So Miyax tries to eat and live alone.

Will her wolf pack migrate without her? Will she survive on her own if they do leave?

Julie of the Wolves, byJean Craighead George, is one of my favorite books. It is very heart warming and heart breaking. I recommend this book especially to people who like animals.
