This book is about an Eskimo-American girl named Julie, or Miyax in Eskimo language. She one day found that her Eskimo village is too dangerous for her to live, so she sets of to Point Hope by her own, hoping to get a chance to go to San Francisco to find her pen pal, Amy. Later, she found herself living with a pack of wolves. Accepted by the leader, Amaroq, and befriended by pup named Kapu, she couldn't decide if she wanted to go back to the civilised places, where the people that kill her wolves live. It was a great book to read and I highly recommend it.
