This book truly portrayed the struggles that young adults face as they enter adulthood. When reading the book, I actually felt as though I was in Canada's Northwest with the main character, Jean Paul. I experienced his happiness as well as the sadness from the hardship he experienced. You will love this book if you love the outdoors.
This story excites the senses, rewards the imagination, and brings out the child within the adult. Truly a work of art that blends mystery, inspiration, and respect for diverse cultures. Lots of kaona (hidden meanings) to ponder upon.
This book is beautiful in every way; the characters are very interesting, from the young boy to the husky dogs, the author's knowledge of the culture is well used, the story is exciting and passionate. I would love to see this story developed into a film, it would be very popular, for old and young alike.
Bonnie Turner is an experienced childrens' novelist who clearly loves to write and does it very well indeed. This book is captivating and set in the beautiful North of Canada.
