Introduction

This book describes a young girl’s battle between the old and the new. Are the old Eskimo ways better than the new gussak ways? Is there a way to have both? Which will she choose?

The book is divided into three parts:

Amaroq, the wolf

Miyax, the girl

Kapugen, the hunter

part 1 amaroq the wolf1

Part 1: Amaroq the Wolf

In this section we are introduced to Miyax, also known as Julie. She is a thirteen year old Eskimo girl who is lost on the Alaskan tundra. Miyax has made contact with a wolf pack which she is trying to befriend. The leader, a large black wolf, reminds Miyax of her dead father. She calls the proud leader of the wolf pack, Amaroq.

Amaroq eventually accepts Miyax and treats her as one of the wolf pups. He anticipates her needs and tries to supply the basics for her.

part 2 miyax the girl1

Part 2: Miyax, the girl

Miyax lost her mother at the age of four and her father in his grief carried her to a seal camp. Her life there was very different as she learned the old Eskimo way of life. At the age of nine, Miyax was forced to leave her father and return to civilization with

next stage of her life begins. In Barrow Julie marries Daniel who has “a few problems”. Her life settled down to cooking, sewing, school, and studying. She saw very little of Daniel until one day he wanted to change the arrangement. Miyax decided it was time to leave.

part 3 kapugen the hunter1

Part 3: Kapugen, the hunter

In this final section of the book, Miyax uses the many skills her father taught her as a young child. Through his teachings, Miyax knows how to capture and kill small game, create needed items like a sled and snowshoes, and how to locate the coast now that night has fallen.
