Yep she is the same person that wrote My Side of the Mountain. I really liked that book but this one...well it was well written just a bit...I don't know. The best part was all the Eskimo lore. The worst was the broken home story.
Julie was a very brave girl and she learned a lot from her dad about the wilderness. When she decided to run away from home and join a wolf pack...that is where it got interesting. She survived in the coldest place all on her own by keeping her wits and using her instincts, brains and heart. I didn't know wolves would be kind to humans. I thought they were like the Jack London's White Fang wolves. These are actually nice, when you figure out how to talk wolf.
