Wolves, like humans, are social animals who communicate verbally as well as in other ways. Julie learned their language during her time among them, and the friendships she formed then remain strong enough so she can rescue two famine-born pups who would otherwise starve to death as their mother's milk fails to sustain them. But what is the eventual outcome of that rescue? And just how much do Julie's teachers really know about wolves, and how much do they assume incorrectly?
In this third volume of Craighead George's trilogy, Julie comes of age as the Jane Goodall of Alaskan wolves. If you're as sentimental as I am about babies of any species, you may find some of the brutally honest passages it contains hard to read; but without that honesty, this would not be the thoughtful tale that it is. It's suitable for readers of any age, and I recommend it highly.

Julie's Wolf Pack is just about that, a wolf pack that a young native woman named Julie had lived with for a time. After the death of their original Alpha, Kapu has taken over as leader of the pack. He is challenged at every turn though, by humans, other wolves, sickness, etc. But despite this life continues as best as it can. It celebrates new pups, triumph over death, a good kill. Everything that is good for a wolf pack is part of their life.
Since this book is about wolves I think it did a great job of describing wolf like. It ranges for alphas to the other pack leaders and each has their own place and personality within the pack. You can describe them in terms of people, but it doesn't really fit the wolves within this book.
The writing is for children, and as such, there really isn't anything offensive in the book. However, there are some scary parts when bad things happen to the wolves, and this may be a little much for some children. For other parts of the book, while I admire the writing I also get bored with it. It seems like it is very repetitive and while I enjoy wolf life, perhaps more detail could have been used to change it up a little bit.
Its a good series, and while this isn't the best of the series, it is still a good book for animals lovers. It can open up imagination in children and have them view wolves as an integral part of the world, and special in their own right.
