Julie of the Wolves

Father’s training she struggles day by day to survive In the process she is forced to rethink her past and to define for herself the traditional riches of Eskimo life intelligence fearlessness and lov. Wanda s Summer Carnival of Children s LiteratureAlthough I know that I read Julie of the Wolves when I was about 11 years old I could not recall a single detail of it just a general impression that it had been an enjoyable book I think I got much out of it reading it as an adult What I can truly appreciate now is the wonderful depiction of the natural world the Arctic environment The author spent some time in Alaska doing biological research and her knowledge of the area just shines through Not just wolves but lemmings skuas foxes and a variety of other birds and animals populate these pages strongly appealing to the naturalist in meAs a child I certainly did not understand the sadness about the changing way of life of the people of the Arctic George was obviously sorry to see the Native people losing their traditional way of life and becoming initiated into regular North American culture The ending is particularly heart wrenching as Julie faces the fact that she must also join in settled life I experienced similar feelings when visiting Bhutan the young people were all excited about the internet and joining in world culture but as a visitor I saw that their culture risked losing so much of its uniueness as a result Yet who in their right mind would deny them the right to modernize It s a balancing act to take the best of other cultures while retaining what is best of your own I think there are echoes in this book of the idea that Native peoples and their cultures would inevitably die out something which so many are still struggling against So many indigenous languages are uickly going extinct being replaced by European languages Hopefully these communities will be able to hold the line against further erosion of their cultures and languages
