This coming of age story in the Alaskan wilderness sparkles to life with an inspired narrator and cast, bringing listeners the magic of living close to nature and traditional Alaskan beliefs. Survival drama abounds, complete with injured sled dogs and raging storms. Hearing the images in this book of diamond-shaped verses may be even effective than reading them. Ages 10-14.
